Cyber Seniors: What it Means To Bridge the Technology Gap

Benjamin Franklin was quoted saying, "He that can have patience can have what he will." Never underestimate the determination of an individual who has patience, purpose, and persistence. On Sunday, May 1st, the AfidenceIT team had the honor of leading the Cyber-Seniors event--an international campaign aimed at connecting the older adults with technology. The campaign is part of the Cyber-Seniors documentary, a heartwarming film that addresses the growing gap between the older adults and technology. The idea originated after two sisters, Macaulee (16) and Kascha Cassaday (18) saw the way technology transformed their grandparent's lives. One of our employees sent us the video, and we felt an instant call for action. Armed with a purpose, we partnered with Cedar Village, a not-for-profit retirement community in Mason, Ohio. We developed a cyber seniors program that involved donating 15 Chromebooks, leading three events, and organizing cyber buddy partnerships.
