“Our goal is to assist seniors in the community in using technology to keep in touch with family, friends and share pictures,” said Russ Hatfield, computer learning volunteer for 14 years. “It’s very rewarding to teach others to use apps such as Facebook, messenger, and many other chat/txt apps to stay in touch with those they love.”
In addition to classes held at Crestview Estates Clubhouse, the Foundation for Senior Care hosts a weekly open lab on Fridays called Fix it Friday where seniors can walk in for help with software or hardware problems. There is no charge for this service but donations are encouraged.
