Starting tomorrow, I will begin as a Program Coordinator at Dorot, an organization which I’ve volunteered for since 2012. My role will be to support the development and implementation of a new initiative to bring individualized technology coaching into the homes of older adults. The program’s goal is to provide older adults with the technology tools which will enable them to expand and enrich their social connections and to increase access to resources that allow them to continue to live independently.
As I have focused on in this blog, I seek to help older adults to continue to live productive and engaging lives, no matter what their age. Using technology is an important way to make this happen, and I am gratified that Dorot has given me the opportunity to help support this important new initiative. Dorot provides a wide range of programs to serve older adults and promotes intergenerational activities better than any other organization in senior services.
