Seniors To Stay Connected With Bowen Neighbourhood Centre

Perfect for the older Bowen locals, the Bowen Neighbourhood Centre is eager to launch their Stay Connected program which helps participants use technology effectively.

Designed for Bowen locals over the age of 55-years-old, the Stay Connected program is a weekly program, that will run for 12-months, with small, yet intimate classes, where the program coordinators can ensure each participant is confident and able to navigate the week’s topic effectively.

“We’ve designed this program to assist individuals to navigate the internet,” Bowen Neighbourhood Centre Executive Officer, Stephanie Cora explained.

The program will cover how to use different smart phones, including Apple and Android devices, iPads and tablets, and integral websites and apps that are incredibly useful to modern life.

These apps include MyGov, HotDoc and other health related apps, email, online shopping apps for Woolworths and Coles, and the Whitsunday Regional Council Disaster Dashboard.

“We have this program kicking off in March, so please register your interest today,” urged Stephanie.

The program will also include cheat sheets of the week’s session, so that participants can easily reflect and remember the completed topics.

“It’s so handy. Put the cheat sheet on the fridge and if you forget something, it’s just right there!”

Contact the Bowen Neighbourhood Centre to register today.
