We are currently running a new online technology program called “SWS Online Buddy Program” to connect seniors who are currently self-quarantining either in retirement homes or at home with Seniors With Skills volunteers. Given the COVID-19 crisis has led to further isolation of senior citizens, Seniors With Skills wants to do everything we can to help seniors remain socially active during this unprecedented time. During the online volunteering sessions, Seniors With Skills volunteers will hold conversations with seniors and talk to them about current events, university life, funny stories etc. Given many of our volunteers have experience running the Computer Training Program, they can also assist seniors with learning how to use iPads, tablets, computers, phones and other technology devices.
