3 Ways to Share Tech With Seniors

By
Email this Print version

Three idea starters for using technology to reach the seniors in your community.

Computer Help. Host an evening for seniors to bring in their laptops and ask all of their questions, from understanding how their programs work to navigating the internet. Be sure to show them around your church’s website as well as other sites they may find helpful—the local library, their bank, etc.

Social Media. Hold a class or a series of classes to help seniors learn the ins and outs of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Consider bringing in teens from the youth group to help teach. You can even show seniors how to FaceTime and/or Skype with their children and grandchildren.

iPod drive. Collect gently used iPods and then donate them to Music & Memory—an organization that helps people in nursing homes and other care facilities suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia to tap into memories through music. For more info, check out MusicandMemory.org.
