“Elder Tech” Classes at Century Villages
Paradise Home Health Care and The Savvy Senior will be teaching “Elder Tech” computer classes at the Deerfield Beach and Boca Raton Century Village communities. These are six week courses which repeat every eight weeks.
Elder Tech program is open to all Deerfield or Boca Raton Century Village residents who are interested in learning about computers, smartphones and tablets. We cover basic uses of email, search and lots of “tips”. Each week we take a look at popular websites that Boomers and seniors have likely heard about but not familiar with. We explore and review such sites as: Google, Pandora, TedTalks, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Groupon, Uber, Meetups, Social Media and Online dating. Participants also receive individualized attention and answers to their questions about their gadgets and the Internet. Grandma Online is open to Grandpas too.
We have found the interest in various websites to be huge. Many participants have heard of YouTube or Uber but do not understand how these, and other siters may apply to them. We show Boomers and Seniors, that the Internet is more than email. They learn that all entertainment, educational tools and shopping along with search are all at their fingertips. Becoming familiar with Pandora or Facebook allows them to share more with their adult children and especially grandchildren who virtually live Online.
If your 55+ community, Senior Center, JCC, Temple or Retirement facility, is interested in programming; we can either present “Elder Tech, bring in guest speakers from a wide range of specialties, or create tailor made presentations and workshops. Paradise Home Health Care believes in giving back to the community by enhancing people’s “quality of life” through education.
