Does this look familiar? A lot of people dismiss the idea of older adults (and by older adults I mean over 75) using technology. For this generation that has lived through our society implementing some of the most incredible technological advances to date, how dare we dismiss them!
When you take a step back to look at what technology offers us in our daily lives, it is actually crucial that we educate and empower the seniors in our life to get online.
In Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga, and Brampton I highly recommend ETAG online.
Etag provides free education and support for older adults who want to learn about technology in a supportive environment. There is no curriculum so you can work on anything from learning basic computer terms (i.e. mouse, browser, and address bar) to signing up for your first email address, or learning about social networks.
You don’t need to be quick on a computer to get real value out of having access to online information.
CalaCare supports bridging the gap between generations by helping older adults to stay safe, stay well, and stay connected.
