Palm Beach county

Palm Beach county seniors are curious about many of the websites they here about. What began as a couple of presentations, such as “Online Dating”, for Boomers and Older Adults/Retirees and Boomers has now grown to a six-part program in which each segment can be done by itself.  Another popular installment is “Technology Made Easy” which walks folks through such popular sites as: YouTube, Google, Pandora, Ted Talks, Netflix and a few others. The topics attendees ask to search range from how to make Matzo Ball Soup or travel tips in Italy. Other installments include UBER and Meet-Ups, How to Send an Email and Attachments, Exploring Amazon and EBay. All topics use a PowerPoint with presenters, Tali Kentof of VITAS and Sherry Picker, MSW to show the sites, give safety tips and answer questions.  The aim is to educate, entertain, and hopefully even enlighten the groups. It is a social hour and a half and both men and women attend, bringing their tablets or laptops.

Upcoming venues include around Palm Beach county:

  • Boynton Beach Senior Center
  • The JCC of Boynton Beach
  • TempleTorat Emet of Boynton Beach
  • The Boca Raton YMCA

  • Temple Anshei Shalom  (Delray Beach)

  • Independent/Assisted Living Communities – Veranda Club, Stratford Court, Allegro

  • Personal Physician Care Community Center – Delray Beach

Additional locales to be added.  All presentations are at NO charge and all are welcome.

Grandparents find the Internet a fun way to connect with their grandchildren by sharing a YouTube video or pictures on FB and much more. Beyond using their smartphones for calls and photos , seniors learn they have a computer in their hands.
