OGDENSBURG -- After five years of not seeing her nephew, Julia Cosentino was able to visit with him while viewing his home and garden via a new service offered at United Helpers Nursing Home.

Residents at the nursing home can communicate with family and friends around the world by way of an Internet connection that allows them not only to hear loved ones but also to see them despite the miles between them.
