Helping Widows access Internet: work for you?
There is a new problem staring to appear in a very specific and not small part of the population: widows that face big mental hurdles to come online and use all the possibilities of Internet. Not only because their relatives and friends put pressure on them to get out of their isolation after their husbands died, but also because a lot of stuff like booking airline tickets etc must be done online. The point is that “my husband always did that”, well….. until he died.
It is a fact that most ladies get much older than their husbands, so this problem will be widespread and not always their grownup children or next doors geek boy will find the time and effort to get grandma through the simple steps to start the computer, log in etc, find the passwords of their husbands mailbox(es) to tell the friends that he has passed away, etc.
So maybe this is a new service which can be provided for a reasonable fee for your time and effort. At least you get cups of tea. Two of my friends are quite busy helping widows of their friends that passed away. Even they might want to hire instructors to do it properly.
May this is something for you to start doing professionaly? But forget to advertise for it online :-))
