Free technological assistance event to be held at Scottville senior center.

SCOTTVILLE — The Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan (AAAWM) will be partnering with the Scottville Area Senior Center to host a free drop-in technology assistance event to provide older adults with one-on-one support with their cell phones, tablets, and laptops. The event will be held Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the senior center, 140 S. Main St.

The event is open to individuals 60 years in age or older who reside in one of the nine counties served by AAAWM:  Mason, Allegan, Ionia, Lake, Kent,, Mecosta, Montcalm, Newaygo, or Osceola.

Attendees who currently own a device are encouraged to bring them to the event, so that their questions can be answered directly. For those who would like to attend but do not currently own a device, a limited number of tablets will be available for participants to utilize during the event. An informational workshop will be offered for those who receive a device. Participants will be able to take the device home with them to keep following the event.

“We are incredibly excited to offer this educational event to residents in the Scottville and surrounding areas,” said Brandon Beck, contract administrator with the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan. “Technology is an essential tool that can improve the well-being and help older adults connect with their community. Whether you are engaging in telehealth services, borrowing an e-book from your local library, or video chatting with friends and family, there is no better time to embrace technology and learn new skills.”
