I love the term feature creep, not heard that before.
You are quite correct benedict. My sharing idea needs more thought, but I still think it has legs if it is refined.
In Pembrokeshire we have free 2 month loan ipad scheme with wifi box for people to have a try. The ipads are set up specifically for the person and support is provided for the person to get on line.

Perhaps Alzheimer's Society could give design and accessability awards for products that are of good standard?
great points Julie
Alexa and similar are a privacy worry and some families are not comfortable introducing them due to this.

Can get help from ability.org.uk for disability assistance with tech
Lots of very interesting tech being developed; for example Konnect enables video calling through the TV: https://www.kraydel.com/
Digital Wales told us about Near Field Communication cards, which can help with password and login issues - I haven't tried them, but they sounded brilliant!

Really good to see this work Zoe
Thank you Zoe, I didn't know Alexa could do so much!
The look of these items matters hugely, too stylish and sleek a person might be scared of ‘breaking’ it (as previous person said). But too large ugly and clumsy family members may feel it’s stigmatising and embarrassing to have in the living room.
It is the stormy weather affecting our connections!
Leaves on the track?...
Good point Tanya. Look and feel are very important indeed, and can make all the difference in whether a person uses the device or not.
'Function AND form' are the words I've heard designers use to describe something that is useful but also aesthetically pleasing.
