I was staggered to discover from E that she is 98.
E is a retired Nurse and worked for the Colonial Service overseas for most of her career. She came along to the Club at Kilravock (now based at St Alban’s Road) for help with her iPad.
Unfortunately, she suffers from hearing loss and struggles to cope in group settings. We therefore arranged 6 ‘beginner’ sessions (Get Started) in her own flat instead.
It wasn’t difficult, with her range of interests, to practise looking things up online. She loves reading but didn’t think much of the choice of books available via the mobile library. We helped her to register with the e-library service so that she can now make her own choices, with some help.
She’s also considering our assisted online shopping service for her ‘big’ shop once a month so that she can still do her own shopping but without the need to ask someone to take her.
Currently, the top 5 Taster Sessions, at the Computer Clubs, are as follows:
