Tech Connect for Older Adults seeks to empower participants 50 and better to understand and utilize the ever growing world of technology. The benefits of technology for older adults is endless.
Whether you are a beginner looking for an introduction to technology or an experienced user with technical questions about your cell phone, tablet, or computer, we are here to help. From scheduling doctors appointments, to chatting with loved ones, to researching hobbies and activities, the information is out there, and we can’t wait to help participants find it.
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Each center will host this one-on-one workshop where you can bring your device, and your questions, and work with one of our knowledgeable tech trainers. Sign-up by calling your center or visiting our website. In order to best serve you, we ask to know the type of device you need help with and a description of your concern.
