Computer Classes Help Seniors

Learning and keeping up with technology is imperative in today’s world, where everything from Social Security enrollment to medical health plan information is accessible by computer. To keep in touch with grandchildren, access to social media such as Facebook is a must.

If you are a senior interested in learning about computers, register for classes with the Putnam County Office for the Aging on Nov. 7, and subsequently the first Thursday of every month at William Koehler Senior Center, Route 6, Mahopac, from 9:30 – 11 a.m., and the Putnam Valley Senior Center, 117 Town Park Lane, Putnam Valley, from 10 a.m. – noon.

Students over age 55 are taught by RSVP volunteers of a similar age. Instructors teach basics to new computer users and offer advanced courses on devices such as iPad, tablets and netbooks.

Courses and seminars are being scheduled for fall and winter sessions. Call Cathy O’Brien at 845-628-6423 or email [email protected]. Visit putnamrsvp.com/clc.
