Help older people and their carers get to grips with their laptops, phones and tablets
Who will I help?
What do you do when you need to make an appointment but can't get your mobile phone to do what you want?
For many older people, understanding how to use the latest digital devices is extremely challenging.
Hackney Carers supports older people with problem-solving sessions to engage with the digital age. And provides a therapeutic, relaxed environment for people who care for them too!
How will I help?
You will help older people sort out basic problems with their laptops, phones and tablets. You don't have to be a tech expert, just knowing how to use the internet and a friendly face go a long way!
You're likely to find yourself:
• Supporting people in solving basic issues with their devices
• Showing people how to use basic software or the WWW
• Providing some well deserved respite for carers and the people they care for
This is a wonderful opportunity to share your everyday computer skills and help people get a grasp on new technologies.
