Marlborough – Are you frustrated because you can’t print an email or can’t find a photo of your grandchild on your computer or tablet? You are not alone. There are many that are having trouble connecting to the outside world and are afraid technology has left them behind.
You can find help and become more comfortable with today’s devices at weekly meetings held at the Marlborough Senior Center. Each Friday at 1 p.m., there is a friendly gathering of enthusiastic seniors who love to assist each other with the challenges that they face with today’s technology. They aim to show them how a phone, tablet or computer can help in their daily lives.
Extending an invitation to all, Tony Badman, leader of the group said: “All you have to do is listen, learn, and contribute.” A project manager at Data General Corporation for many years, he enjoys learning about the new features and upgrades and sharing them with group members. At a recent meeting, Allen Fleishman shared his knowledge of smart phones for emergency purposes.
The Technology Help Group has been meeting for more than two years, said Activities Director Lisa Martino.
“It is very popular and we are pleased so many seniors are taking advantage of the opportunity,” she said.
