Tea and Tech Khandallah

Helping seniors with technology

Nothing changes faster than technology! For many seniors, the rapid pace of change with technology can cause stress and worry, especially when the way we do everyday things like banking is being steered online.

Age Concern’s Tea and Tech day is all about helping seniors build confidence online and with their devices. It’s a drop-in session event where seniors can bring any device along and get one on one help from a friendly volunteer.

Our recent event at Khandallah was attended by 19 seniors, who enjoyed some great food and met our fantastic volunteers. All of the volunteers were staff from AMP who had a day out of the office helping in the community.

“Tea and Tech is a great opportunity for seniors to come and get personalised help with their tech device,” Stephen Opie, Age Concern Wellington CEO said.  “It’s a space where they can feel comfortable to ask any question, no matter how simple and get some of those nagging tech issues fixed. A huge thanks to AMP staff for committing the time to come and help our seniors.”

It was a great day and we hope to plan more of these events in the future. Check out the short video of the day below.

"I am quite computer experienced, but the newest laptop was different, and that is where I needed a person to assist. Oscar did well. Online material can be just full of too many words! I was impressed, so I shall join Age Concern next week!"
