Centenarian keeps up-to-date with the digitalage

One of Home Instead Senior Care’s elderly clients, centenarian Ted, is proving that you are never too old to keep up-to-date with and enjoy the modern advances in technology.

 Despite recently celebrating his 101st birthday, Ted is a keen technology enthusiast. He regularly uses a computer, chats with friends around the globe via Skype and even checks out the latest apps on his iphone.

 Ted commented, “I really enjoy using the latest technology. Skype in particular lets me stay in touch with friends all over the world. The technology also means that I can contact friends and family without leaving the house. With winter approaching it makes life much easier.”

 Care Manager, Mary Pearson commented, “It’s great that Ted is such a keen technology enthusiast as it is a useful way for many older people to keep in touch with friends and family. When we heard that Ted’s 101st birthday was coming up, we couldn’t pass the opportunity to throw a small celebration for him. Our surprise visit and small gift were much appreciated!”
