As a senior citizen, I would like to inform you there is no getting around using computers to assist us with our lives. If you are 65, by now you have most likely been advised to apply for your medicare benefits ‘online‘. Unless you are located in a remote place on the planet (for example, living in the woods without any access to technology at all), sooner or later, you will have to apply for something, which is not available unless you use a computer. Most of your family probably uses email to ‘stay in touch‘. It’s the best way to expediently ‘communicate’ . Yes, the www (world wide web) has changed how we work, play, entertain, shop and much more. This post is for those of you who do not have ANY computer skills. However, it is also for the many proficent computer users who are senior citizens and could appreciate a little extra help for their computer questions.
