“Helping seniors with their technology is a wonderful experience for me.”
“And it’s very rewarding for them, too, “says Peter Templin, who runs our weekly Technology Lab.”
Every Wednesday, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, people come to Peter along with their laptops, tablets and smartphones. He’s amazed how many seniors are already comfortable with technology, and he gladly helps them with any problems they may have, like how to post a photo on Facebook from an Android tablet. Everyone gets individual attention, which makes a difference.
“Recently a woman expressed interest in contacting her family in the Ukraine. I was able to help her install Skype on her tablet, which now allows her to renew family connections.” It doesn’t get much better than that.
