What


Senior citizens are embracing the digital age in greater numbers every year. Fifty-three percent of adults ages 65 and older now use the Internet and online tools such as email and social media.  The internet helps senior citizens connect with society, bringing vital information and resources to them.

There are risks associated with being online, and, sadly, many scammers target senior citizens.

Come learn what to do: STOP. THINK. CONNECT. 

There will also be an At-Home Technology Support Company in attendance.

Why


Seniors today are faced with a dilemma. They did not grow up during the era of computers and the internet, yet this age group now depends on this technology. As a result, seniors are learning more and using technologies for the first time. In general, technology is helping to give senior citizens an improved quality of life through increased connectivity and a sense of community.
