Not only viable, I know someone who is doing this.
My Mother-in-Law, who is 80, has a young fellow who consults on her computer for her. He charges her a flat rate per hour and helps her with whatever she needs to know. It takes the strain off the rest of the family and she has become quite adept as a computer user. She is even using advanced graphics programs now.
And yes... target the kids of those seniors... Some (babyboomeradult)kids would love to get their parents on line, but haven't the time to get them online... a "Get your parents online" Christmas package might go over well and you could see yourself with steady contracts right through easter.
Just a thought.
