Make it easier for seniors to connect to SeniorsConnect.org, the recently inaugurated web site designed exclusively to serve older adults in Northeast Ohio.
That is the goal and purpose of free web site presentations that have been scheduled at various locations around the Greater Cleveland area where seniors and those who care for and about them will be instructed on how to connect to the information-packed web site.
"This is a great resource for seniors, and through these presentations we hope to acquaint seniors with the new web site and also to encourage them in computer use," said Craig Clark,
Project Coordinator for SeniorsConnect.org at the Cleveland Public Library.
SeniorsConnect.org is the specialized online resource designed to connect seniors to a wide range of information available via the internet that is vital and helpful to them.
The new web site allows seniors to log on to the web site wherever they have internet access, including the Cleveland Public Library and the Cuyahoga County Library system.
"The live demonstrations will introduce seniors and to those who care for and about them to the web site," Clark said. "The free presentations provide a unique opportunity to discover all the resources, assistance and support for seniors available at SeniorsConnect.org. It will also allow us to interact with the population we are trying to serve."
Seniors have much to gain from the SeniorsConnect.org web site.
It will link them to the web's best resources chosen by information experts. To keep in touch with friends and family, seniors will be able to set up their own personal e-mail accounts. It will connect them to people and events taking place in and around the Cleveland area. Importantly, it will help them find the help and the local resources that will meet their needs.
The web site was developed by a partnership consisting of the Cleveland Public Library and the Senior Success Vision Council, a division of the Community Vision Council.
