With social distancing measures in place for our health and safety, we may feel like we have lost the social connections we have with others. Technology can be a useful way to help bridge this gap. Our "Making IT Easier" video series was designed to teach older adults to use technology to enhance their lives. You can catch Kendrick's interviews via the links below:
