Staying connected with Zoom

Written by: Alison Reijman Published: August 31, 2023

As summer ends, we will start to spend more time indoors. As a result, seeing our family and friends in person will become more difficult.  At Brendoncare, we would like to help you connect with your loved ones using online services such as Zoom.
