TECHNOLOGY COACHES and TUTORS

Older Adults can feel left behind by this digital age, a feeling that is compounded by the onset of Covid-19. Technology, now more than ever is essential for people to stay socially connected and many of our seniors are motivated to learn how to use technology to connect with friends, family, community groups, informative resources, and medical providers. Two senior centers in Bucks County are starting a pilot program to aid older adults to access and use tech devices to fight back against social isolation.
