SCAN Health Plan and Hill Physicians Medical Group have teamed up to offer two basic technology classes for seniors this summer. “Cell Phone Basics” and “Computer Basics” are 90-minute classes developed and delivered by SCAN Health Plan. The free classes will be held at Hill Physicians Medical Group, 1776 W. March Lane, Suite 440, 4th Floor, in Stockton.
“New technology doesn’t have to be intimidating,” said Delena Penner, community outreach manager for SCAN. “Our patient and knowledgeable staff teach seniors the basics and how to have some fun with technology, too.”
Cell Phone Basics will be held on Wednesday, June 11, at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. The class was designed to help seniors understand the basic and advanced functions of their cell phones or smartphones, including texting and storing contact information.
Computer Basics will be held on Wednesday, July 30, at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. Computer Basics is an entry-level, senior-focused class for those who’ve never used a computer but want to learn how. Participants will learn basic computer terminology, initial setup procedures, and how to use computer components like a keyboard and mouse.
"Keeping your mind active and learning new things are important parts of healthy aging,” said Harpreet Grewal, M.D., Regional Medical Director of Hill Physicians Medical Group. "That is why we are pleased to partner with SCAN in bringing these programs to our community."
These small, hands-on classes are designed specifically for older adults. There is no cost to attend either class; however, seating is limited, and registration is required. To register, call Hill Physicians Medical Group at 209-762-5003.
