Beneficial Technology 2020

Never before has technology proven to be as beneficial as it has in 2020.

 

There are so many things that can be done on a tablet, smart phone or computer. Technology allows us the capability to stay in face to face communication with those we love during a difficult time, and while technology can never take the place of being able to give someone a hug, it helps to keep that personal connection all through video chat. In recent months, people have explored so many creative ways to keep one another socialized and connected, and we are all learning at the same time. Heck, even our medical practitioners are learning, making it possible to see your doctor from home. If you aren’t already using the technology that is available, give it some thought; there’s not a better time to learn and I can’t foresee any of these virtual options going away any time soon. Make a playlist of your favorite songs, watch your favorite program, play games, utilize social media, such as facebook to stay up to date with the pictures that your friends and family share. These are all just some things that can be done using today’s technology.

 

GrandPad is a tablet designed for seniors. It’s easy to see and to navigate, and you don’t need to have your own internet wi-fi, because it is built into the tablet. While I won’t endorse this product, I have heard good things about it. For more information about the GrandPad call 888-545-1425.

 

A tablet such as a Kindle Fire will begin at around $50 and will require wi-fi to utilize most of the interactive features, however, many places offer free wi-fi connection.

 

Technology does not have to be intimidating. If you are interested in learning about resources on where to purchase or how to utilize your device, give the senior center a call and we will direct you how to begin.
