Sharing the Gift of Technology
Feeling isolated can consume you.
This time of year is especially difficult for millions of older adults. The 3 biggest threats of aging are hunger, isolation and loss of independence.*
This month we worked with local nonprofits to surprise seniors with smart devices they can use to stay connected - and spread a little holiday cheer.
Through our initiative Digital You, we’re providing online tools, apps and resources for people of all ages to learn how to have a safe and secure online experience.
This support is especially valuable to older adults. In 2014, 77% said they need help to walk through the process of using a new tech device such as a smartphone or tablet.**
