Tech for Seniors Initiative

The Tech for Seniors Initiative is designed not only to bridge the digital divide among our senior population, but also to empower seniors with the skills and resources to confidently navigate both health care and the broader digital landscape.

13 weeks

 13 week program for select senior centers to engage their members in evolving technology and to improve their digital health care experiences.


Attentive support

1:1 facilitator support and community building opportunities. Participants will learn to access critical health care resources and services more broadly offered by JKPPA. 


Technology Access

Participants will have access to ipads. They'll be empowered and encouraged to navigate online health care portals. Seniors will be in charge of their health care management.

Our Tech for Seniors Initiative reflects our unwavering commitment to responsible patient advocacy and the overall well-being of our senior community. The 13-week program at three different senior centers is designed to:

  • Enhance Health Literacy

  • Foster Social Engagement

  • Promote Cognitive Well-being, and 

  • Reduce Barriers to Health Care Access

Our skillfully designed initiative combines technology workshops, one-to-one coaching, community engagement, and resource materials to participants.
