Digital Gold for our Silver Surfers

ANTS Digital provides training courses for Senior Citizens

In the last 150 years we have made a giant leap from the Industrial Revolution to the Digital one. We have witnessed a journey from the farming fields, to machines, and then to the Android phone and IPad. However, during this rapid change, how many of our elderly parents and grandparents acquired this knowledge? Indeed, how many got left behind? Many of us went to live in new states or new countries and yearned for our children to see the faces of Nana, Nani and Dada, Dadi. Ladies got married and husbands obtained jobs which took them away from their families. The disconnection had begun, and ANTS Digital is acutely aware of this factor. It was precisely this wish which came from middle-aged “children”, for their elderly parents to be trained in Digital Technology which led to a Senior Citizens Digital training program. These courses focus on digital empowerment, education and inclusion. There are many more benefits that go far beyond just connecting with friends and family, or being able to shop online. Medical studies have shown digital tools and training can help provide critical stimulation to clients who have had problems with their memory, such as the aftermath of a brain stroke. Friends of the Elderly UK state how they “undertook a pilot study which showed that the use of tablet computers can have incredible benefits for older people, especially those with dementia”. ANTS were able to show our silver surfers how to do things like make video calls and email to whatsapp messages to stay in touch with families and friends. Some senior citizens wanted to be able to visit virtual stores and shop online. If your elderly relative has impaired mobility, knowledge of this can help reduce the impact that disability brings. ANTS Digital believes in DIGITAL FOR ALL because digital technology offers a new dimension to many of our activities, whatever your age...
