Technology Services for Seniors
Improved Quality of Life Through Connectivity.
The Carroll Center for the Blind offers technology instruction that can help seniors with vision impairments learn to use technology independently. Programs are available for computers, iPhone, iPad, tablets, Microsoft Office applications, smartphones or braille technology.
“The Carroll Center opened up a whole new world for me. Before attending their program, I did not have my own email address. If my wife received an email for me, she would either read it to me or she would print it for me to read on my CCTV. At the Carroll Center, I was set up with my own email address. Now, I can read emails at my leisure.”
Training is offered in our state-of-the-art training center in Newton, Massachusetts as well as in your home or through e-learning instruction delivered over the internet. Group and individualized instruction are offered, so whether you are a new user, have just upgraded your system or need to learn a specific software program, we can create a program just for you.
One-Day Small Group Technology Courses
A series of one-day, small group (maximum of 3 to 4 participants) computer courses is geared towards individuals that need refreshing on topic-specific material and is offered on a rolling basis.
If you just need help with a smartphone, tablet or any other personal computing device, you can schedule short lessons to help you learn specific tasks and apps. In-home instruction is also available.
eCarroll Technology Instruction
If distance prohibits you from travelling to the Carroll Center, you can still receive instruction in a specific application on your phone or computer. Our eCarroll Technology Instruction is the perfect solution for you.
