So does this sound familiar?
“Nani, I showed you that last week, for the tenth time, why cant you remember?”
Or how about this?
“I can’t right now, I’m busy”
Or how about?
“It’s really easy, why don’t you understand it?”
For many older people looking to family members for advice or help with their mobile phone or laptop this is exactly what they hear.
However, in turn, we hear:
“The younger generation go too fast, they do not have time for us”
“We are not stupid, we have learned complicated things, we just don’t understanding this bit and we are being forced to use it”
As well as
“This technology business is the future but we don’t know where to start”
All of this can make you stressed and when you are stressed it’s hard to concentrate and learn new things.
So we created the Mobile Phone Boot Camp; an opportunity for older people to go right back to basics and learn fundamentals such as changing settings, checking email, using maps or installing apps whilst practicing in small groups.
Even better, helping each other!
