We believe that computer skills are absolutely necessary for senior adults in today's world!
Through email, seniors can keep up with family and friends when distance and driving abilities make visits impossible.
Searching medical websites can answer many questions that seniors either do not feel comfortable asking their doctor, or do not feel are important enough to take up the doctor's time – but definitely need to be answered!
Being able to navigate a website and complete forms on-line is becoming the normal way to sign up for financial benefits and insurance.
