Case Study, Elena

Elena was referred to Tech to Community Connect one year ago in November 2020. She is a full time carer for her daughter and heard about the project through Surrey Action for Carers. Since having her tablet, Elena has found it invaluable, using it to help support her daughter, receive music lessons, keep up with worldwide news, attend medical appointments and to fill her house with music all day long.

Elena told me all about how much she loves to dance and how, when she can, she volunteers to dance for different charitable organisations and schools.

It’s always brilliant to see a tech member successfully introduce a device into their daily lives and make use of it for both work and play. Elena reminds me that as a carer, it’s important to take some time for yourself to unwind and recharge and it sounds like she’s struck a perfect balance.
