Discover how relatively easy-to-use technology  can enhance the life of older adults and allow them to engage with family, friends, caregivers and health and wellness professionals.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand current technology that older adults can use with ease;
  • Describe comments and experience from a focus group of 10 adults ages 80, 90 and older who are embracing simple tablets to enrich their daily living; and,
  • Adopt and implement strategies to assist others.

Presenters:

Arthur Kupperman created My Senior Portal in 2010. It’s a web portal to help older adults use the Internet for education, engagement, entertainment and communication. He has now expanded into developing simple-to-use tablets and activity trackers to further engage and enhance the aging experience.
