I have heard two different arguments about how useful the internet is to seniors. One view is that the uses are so technical and change so much that the only thing it adds is a way to stay in touch with grandchildren. On the other hand, the Baby Boomers, who are retiring now, have used the internet for business purposes, to shop from home, to find answers to questions and ways to do many tasks and projects.
Even touch screens have simplified navigation and overcome the challeges of using keyboards. (I am not a classically trained typist, but I persist even if I have to spell check everything I write.)
We have several members who create web sites, and who understand the need to simplify the way a website looks and will design it to meet your unique usages. (See our Internet and Technology Uses topics. Our leaders there are very sensitive and helpful.)
