The global pandemic has increased the need for basic tech skills and older adults may feel they have been left behind, but technology can make life easier. That’s why it’s a good idea to learn how to use computers or tablets. By learning to harness the power of technology and apps like Zoom, Facetime, and Skype, people will be able to stay connected with just the click of a few buttons.
Occasional, in-home, tech support and instruction can be arranged by making an appointment with our Digital Literacy Coach by leaving a message at 604-245-8410.
*A fee of $25 per hour for home visits is required.
