I recently stumbled on a thread for a project aimed at an elderly person with alzheimers. I had already been thinking about a project for my grandmother.
She will not touch any electronics, but they have internet at the house cause my grampa uses a laptop. Anyways, shes always in the kitchen, and she cant remember much about whats going on for that day, so I wanted to come up with something I can leave on the window sill over the kitchen sink, and she will see it, and it will have basic info for the day (time,date,etc), as well as me being able to leave memos and stuff. I have a VPS and was thinking of hosting the site on it, so I could make changes easily, but I though maybe it would be simpler to just host the site right on the Pi.
So, I am asking for suggestions about monitoring and leaving updates, and eventually I would like to add some interactive functionality by maybe just adding 2 buttons to start of with, Yes/No type of thing and eventually adding maybe a just a simple VOIP client with some presets.
This is what I have so far,
I used minibian and installed TFT modules and framebuffer support, and used a 2.2" tft screen that I had laying around, if im happy with the outcome I will get a larger display. The Pi is connected to wifi, and I just use ssh.
