Seniors like technologies

Even seniors at the age of 70 - 85 do not resist using information technologies.

We are talking about the retirement facility DOMOV from Bratislava´s residential part Dubravka. The seniors from the facility responded to the offer from Aliter Technologies with great enthusiasm. IT specialists, who during the volunteer week organized by BDC (Bratislava Volunteer Center) decided to disclose to the seniors the practical world of information-communications technologies, met with the students with such a hunger for new information and knowledge that could be the envy of many educators. As Martin Adamka, one of the trainers from Aliter Technologies revealed they prepared an educational workshop which was tailored to the needs and interests of these active seniors. The marketing specialist adds:

Organizing of the workshop for the seniors is very significant for the company, because we feel that also the elderly people are directly affected by technologies. Therefore, we would like to be the ones who will bring them the technologies closer.“

The facility director, Mgr.Janka Dudoňová, was very happy about the cooperation with the company and the interest of the seniors.

„I really appreciate the added value this workshop gave to our seniors. I was pleasantly surprised to see the interest with which they delved into the secrets of handling the information technologies. I am also very happy about their determination to apply gained knowledge into practice. It will help them to stay in touch with their close relatives and further social contacts. And that is very good.“
