Are You a Senior?
Switched on Seniors has been providing tech help to seniors for several years, focusing on the iPads and iPhones, and now also other smartphones.
If you are a senior and would like to learn more about iPads in a friendly group setting, please contact us, you are more than welcome to join in!
Are Your Parents Seniors?
Switched on Seniors can help your parents and/or grandparents gain the skills and confidence to make better use of smart devices. Our focus is mainly on the iPads and iPhones to access services and connect with friends, family, and the world beyond.

Would you like to volunteer?
Switched on Seniors is looking for helpers to assist our members in learning how to use technology.
You don’t need to be a tech wizard!
Knowing how to use iPhones or iPads, tablets, or smartphones, being willing to share what you know with others, and enjoying continuing to learn as technology evolves are required.
You will get fulfilment and satisfaction in seeing many of you help gain skills and confidence in using technology, and you will probably learn more than you could ever imagine yourself.
What is it that is increasingly making older Australians feel alienated from society?
If you answered 'technology' then I think many people would agree with you.
Switched on Seniors uses a continuous learning, peer directed and group process model that connects, informs, supports, inspires and empowers those who participate. It provides a place where those who are excluded from participating in our digital society because of their lack of computer knowledge can gain the skills and confidence to make use of tech devices that can connect them better with friends, family and the world beyond.

Tech help for Seniors by Seniors.
Are you missing out when:
You are told you need to go online to get the things you need and you don’t know how to do it - or even know what it means?
Your kids have given you an iPad or tablet and you don’t know how to use it?
That smartphone you were persuaded to buy just seems to be too smart for you?
Your parents (or kids or grandkids) live in another city or country and you’d love to be able to video chat to them on Skype or FaceTime?
You have retired and you would like to find something significant, enjoyable and fulfilling to do in your retirement.
