SeeYouLink allows computer-averse older adults and people living with mild cognitive, aural or visual impairments to participate in the digital world.
The first pilot, now in its seventh year in the U.K., involved 500 Holocaust survivors, average age 88 years old, 67% of whom had never used a computer before. Five years later, of the subjects who are still living, 75% are still using the technology to connect with loved ones, find news and information, receive telehealth, watch movies and play games.
We will study how the combination of this technology and our online virtual LGBTQ-welcoming senior community Stonewall Village NYC can change the lives of isolated older adults. Our pilot will bring 30 isolated individuals into our online interactive community.
