Teaching Connecticut Seniors To Use Internet Technologies

Senior iPad

Assisted Living Services, Inc. has been offering opportunities for Connecticut seniors to gain knowledge and experience in using computers, mobile devices, and social networks through it’s learning center.

Based in Meriden Connecticut, the agency has a subsidiary company called Assisted Living Technologies that, among other things, provides one-on-one tutorials with seniors who want to learn more about using  internet and computer technologies.  The fact is, seniors have become the fastest growing segment of the population to join the internet community.  “What I find is that most of the seniors I assist have a keen interest in learning how to use social media like Facebook, Twitter, and email so they can connect with family and reconnect with old friends. They also love to learn how to do searches for things that interest them like hobbies and health care” says Brian Luckhardt, Technologies Specialist at Assisted Living Technologies, Inc.  Brian will visit clients in their home or, if clients prefer, will see them in our Meriden location.

During a recent visit, longtime Meriden resident Ned DeRosa learned how to better use his new iPad2.  Mr. DeRosa was interested in learning how to make on-line purchases, researching about wine making (a favorite hobby), and learning about trading stocks. Now he visits each week and is becoming very proficient on the web indeed!
