Podcast on aging, end-of-life (death, funeral, cemetery, cremation) planning, elder caregiving, hospice, the afterlife, technology for independent travel and living.

Hey everybody!  

The purpose of DPS is not to make money, which is a good thing, because it doesn't. It is presently a labor of love that I hope helps you in some way. Your donations, whether made directly through the PayPal donate button found next to my signature, or indirectly though one of the other offers you'll find below, offset my costs but don't fully cover them. To pay the rent, I work by day as a contract Project Manager.

Before you go, please take a moment to look over some of the other FREE ways you can help keep the show going. Signing up for any one of these is a great way for me to stay in touch with you, to hear your ideas, opinions and perspectives on how I might be helpful. Check out the options below and choose one you that interests you, with my thanks!

How to Set Up Amazon's Echo for an Elder

My 92 year old mom loves her new Echo. Because it responds to natural language commands ("Alexa! What's the weather?") she uses it to easily listen to her favorite music, stay in touch with her children, and keep lists of things she needs to remember. But knowing how to set up an Echo for your elder loved one is tricky! I created this document to show you how.
