Technology Tools for Seniors – Making Community Connections

Tri-County Literacy Council is offering a free instruction booklet written specifically for seniors – thanks to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.

With this guide, seniors learn to use electronic terminals and devices found around town. Topics include instructions for using:

coverthumb• the parking lot terminals and pay stations at the hospital;
• the Check-In Kiosk at the Walk-in Clinic (McConnell);
• an In-restaurant Kiosk at a fast food restaurant;
• a Picture Kiosk to self-develop photographs;
• a debit card when shopping at retail stores;
• a credit card to pay at a restaurant; and
• an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) for banking.

This easy-to-use booklet is written in clear language, with large print and many images. It can be turned over on its spine, to make it smaller and easier to hold, should seniors wish to keep it in a purse or carrier.

As part of this community project, seniors also have the option of calling Tri-County Literacy Council and requesting to be shown how to perform these tasks with the help of a senior volunteer, in a small group setting onsite.

If you’re a senior 55+, call Tri-County Literacy Council at 613-932-7161 for your free booklet (available while quantities last).
