Using Mobile Technology to Enrich the Lives of Older Adults

 

Generation Connect specializes in high-touch, person-centered training resources.  We've partnered with innovative gerontologists to develop three distinct programs to benefit:

 
 
  • People with Alzheimer's, other dementias, and their caregivers
  • Students and local seniors
  • People that are new to technology


These programs can be facilitated at schools, libraries, community centers and retirement communities.

Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that can disconnect a person from their identity and result in confusion, anxiety and depression.

Intergenerational Exchange Program

CONNECTING LOCAL STUDENTS AND SENIORS

Developed in partnership with gerontologist Dr. Mary Ligon


Students and seniors exchange knowledge and understanding through person-centered iPad activities.  Mobile technology becomes the vehicle for impactful, intergenerational experiences.

TRAINING PROGRAM TO HELP NEW LEARNERS EMBRACE TECHNOLOGY VIA THE IPAD

Everyone can benefit from the mobile technology revolution, but many lack the desire or confidence. Conventional training overlooks the individual; it is one size fits all. 

Our approach is designed for new learners with selective content, familiar language and visual training guides… but none of that matters, if participants are not compelled to use the device.  We provide the blueprint for high-touch, personalized training!
