What other people have said

'Really that's been the best part for me - the interactions between the older ones and the young ones. I really liked that'

"The young people we had were very patient and understanding... they explained things clearly and at no point made us feel 'old' or 'stupid'."

'I think it's been very good, because older people often look at iPads as if they're going to break or something - but these weeks have taught me that really it's a wonderful tool, and you've just got to get in there and use it! And not be frightened of it! Now I feel as if I'm joining the REAL world.'
