Social Support - Technology
Keeping you connected to family and friends
While nothing beats seeing someone face to face, the internet offers different ways to stay in touch with family and friends, whether they are near or far. With the simple push of a button, it can open up special family milestones, such as a grandchild’s first steps or a relative’s birthday.
It can also help you to find helpful information, catch up on the news, pay bills or find a new scrabble partner, all from the comfort of your own armchair. Read our article that gives you five reasons you should get online.
But knowing where to start can be a bit daunting. That’s why we have designed Let’s Connect, a social technology programme that supports you every step of the way.
We take special pride in the personal “one on one” support we provide, with an easy-to-use device alongside personal coaching in the comfort of your own home, plus practical advice and technical support over the phone from your expert KinCare coach.
How it works
We understand that technology can sometimes feel confusing and we’re here to help build your skills and confidence every step of the way. We will listen to you to understand your interests and suggest options that are right for you, from sharing photos with family, playing games or being a part of communities with the same interests.
