Technology is a great tool to help seniors stay connected with each other, with family and with the greater community. Seniors use technology to:
Access the internet
Place and receive phone calls
Send and receive emails
Take and upload digital photos
Questions that come up generally are around these basic functions although there are a few seniors who would like to learn more advanced technology skills. If you enjoy working with people and are technology-proficient (any high school student today qualifies), this would be a great volunteer activity for you.
