Seniors’ Digital Literacy & Wellness

Funded by the Toronto Foundation, RIWC’s new Seniors’ Digital Literacy & Wellness programs promote community engagement and digital inclusion to improve the health and wellbeing of senior women.  Our program includes a NEW Technology Mentorship and virtual Group Support Program directed at older adult women living in the Greater Toronto Area.

Through our Mentorship Program, senior women in the community will be matched with one of our mentors for 3 to 4 weeks (or as long as needed) to complete individual technology assessments, arrange for access to technology, guide them in the set-up and use of the technology, and cover key topics that will help them navigate and access information about healthcare, government benefits and virtual supports in the community. Clients who are eligible for the program include senior women living in the City of Toronto who need technical skills training to access information and resources in the community.

Monthly virtual support groups will also be hosted by our Technology Mentors and expert guest speakers to cover topics related to mental health, nutrition, online banking, scheduling home care, use of social media and introduction to new communication strategies to stay connected in the community (i.e. video conference, email, texting, creating new accounts etc.).
