This week, I interviewed Shane, care worker on the Better Caring platform. Shane, along with other care workers on Better Caring, specialises in teaching people who are ageing how to use technology.
In my interview with Shane, he mentioned that having witnessed his grandfather being scammed by a forged email, he saw the need to raise awareness on how to safely use technology. “There is so much to be gained from technology!” said Shane, who wants to ensure his clients “do not let the fear of being scammed stop them from using the Internet.”
If you would like to introduce your loved one to technology and you don’t have enough time to teach them how to navigate a tablet, smartphone or laptop, there are care workers on the Better Caring platform like Shane who are positive and passionate about helping people who are ageing feel empowered by technology.
Technology is not only a great source of entertainment for people who are ageing – it also has a number of positive benefits. Research suggests that people who are ageing who use technology have improved mental capabilities than those who don’t use technology. Other studies have shown that using technology also lowers the risk of dementia and depression.
Shane specialises in teaching people how to navigate:
- Google Doc’s
- Useful iPhone apps… such as Uber, and more!
