Virtual companies can bring warmth, too.

The footage is recorded by the home security camera, which the author installed out of safety concerns for her grandma who lives alone.
Every now and then, the grandma appears in front of the camera with a grin, presenting her little but lovely discoveries in her life.
Sometimes it would be a bunch of flowers, fresh vegetables or stones in grotesque shapes. Sometimes, the grandma would just sit at the doorstep to let her far-away granddaughter know that she’s doing OK.
After watching this video, many netizens commented that they are touched and miss their grandma.
“Please slow down your pace, time,” One netizen wrote.
The number of senior people aged over 60 in China has exceeded 250 million by the end of 2019, roughly 18 percent of its total population, a report published by the Chinese Aging Well Association showed.
