Technology and Us

What does it do?

Here at Age UK Oldham we offer classes and home visits designed to get older people up to speed with technology and connected to our increasingly technological society.

Over one million older people living in the UK today feel lonely, out of touch and cut off from society. It’s hard to imagine that people can feel isolated in a world of emails, Facebook and Skype. But imagine your life without the internet. What if you couldn't stay in touch with your friends, family and find information and help instantly? This is the reality for many older people who live alone.
