Smartphones, iPads and Alexa, oh my! Keeping up with new technology can be overwhelming, which is why we host weekly classes on using digital devices.
Technology Tuesdays provide residents opportunities to learn new skills and get questions answered, keeping them plugged-in and connected with family and friends. Residents learn how to use their devices to look up information, download apps, share photos or recipes, set reminders and send emails.
Residents socialize with each other when they gather to ask questions about their phones and tablets and learn how to better connect with friends and family using apps like FaceTime while connecting with one another.
Benefits of Learning Technology
Mastering digital devices has several benefits for residents, including:
• Social Connection
• Mental Stimulation
• Assistance with Cognitive or Motor Impairments
• Increased Sense of Independence
