Zoom Etiquette for People Living with Dementia
(Connecting Online, Part Four)
In a time of Covid-19 many of us are not able to leave our homes, either due to having to shield, are on lock-down or are reducing our time outside to protect ourselves and others from getting the virus.
However, this means we are having less contact and connection with our family and friends. If you live alone, this can be very isolating and it may be for many days, weeks or months. The only contact you may have with people is through the telephone.
You do not need to on your own. We are living in a time where we can connect to people easily through virtual devices. One platform is Zoom, which is very easy to use, even if you are not comfortable or confident using technology.
All you need to have is a laptop, desktop computer, smartphone, tablet and internet connection. If you don't have any of these, you can also connect to a Zoom Meeting using your regular telephone.
In this course, you will be introduced to Zoom, explore what it is, how it works and will be given step by step instructions on how to join a Zoom Meeting. The course consists of simple instructions, with accompanying videos, so you can connect as you watch along.
This course is PART FOUR of our 'Connecting Online' courses. This module was written by Martin Robertson lives in Aberdeenshire, lives with dementia and was diagnosed in 2016 with Posterior Cortical Atrophy.
This series of courses was co-produced by people living with dementia and their allies - Innovations in Dementia, Dr Jane Rowley at Trent Dementia. Members of Zoomettes and the DEEP Network.
To access this course, you will need to self enrol on the course. This is really easy, just follow the instructions and provide your name, email address and a password.
