Learning to get online and how to use the internet are important modern skills
Many older people have felt there was no need for them to learn about the technology, or just felt that the world had passed them by. But this is changing rapidly. The most rapid take up of smart phones, tablets and computers is now amongst the older generation… and why not.
Action for Elders is fully supporting programmes to help you to understand just what is available and to make it much easier for you to get online. Our particular emphasis is not the technology itself but on helping you to keep in touch with family and friends. In particular, we are encouraging our members to explore the world of video calling to help them escape from isolation and get back in contact with old friends and their families.
