We are now in the information age when an infinite amount of facts are widely available to anyone who can use a computer. But many senior citizens have a fear of computer technology. Like anything, this fear is caused by a lack of knowledge and understanding.
That is where David can help. With his over 31 years of experience with personal computers and genuine caring, patient and friendly nature, senior citizens can obtain
sufficient skill in the use of computers to help them achieve anything they want to do. David is passionate about helping seniors master computer operations.
Whether it be learning to use Windows, typing a letter, compiling a spreadsheet, finding your way around an Apple iPad or Android smartphone, searching for information on the web, keeping in touch with loved ones by email, or using Skype or Facetime to watch your grandkids take their first steps, David will inform and inspire.
Perhaps you are an artistic sort who loves to draw and paint, David will show you how to do this with a computer. The applications (apps) of computers are truly only limited by your imagination.
For many seniors, tablets are becoming a popular alternative to desktop and laptop personal computers, like the Apple iPad shown here.
Microsoft Windows 10 is now available as a free upgrade to users of Windows 7 and 8.1 and David is the first to offer training in the new operating system, with his senior clients being the first to benefit. New features like Microsoft HoloLens will bring holographic computing to Windows users for the first time.
GOLDEN AGE OF THE WEB
The golden age of the web is upon us: Seniors (age 60 to 100) represent the fastest-growing segment of internet users, clearly proving that you can indeed teach an old dog new tricks. These days, eyebrows no longer lift in amazement at the thought of senior citizens going online. In fact, they are heading into cyberspace in droves to access information on education, health, genealogy, hobbies, and more. Plus, online communication has proved to help the older population reduce isolation by staying in touch with family and friends.
Some seniors are initially intimidated and frustrated by computers. Although some retirement communities offer computer facilities, technical support may be fragmented or nonexistent. In-home personalised services are a better way for seniors to learn computer skills and become internet-savvy. As part of his professional services, David helps his clients purchase their computers and peripherals, installs the equipment, and then teaches them how to use it.
Once they are online, seniors generally want to learn about word processing, personal finance, and desktop publishing software. They also enjoy playing computer games and conducting genealogy searches. David makes it part of his mission to keep seniors connected through the use of their computers. This service can often include teaching computer basics or more advanced skills, or providing assistance with equipment purchase, software, and equipment upgrades.
