Stroud care home helps the community to go digital

Home news

A care home in Stroud is inviting the community to join a free virtual event to help people master home technologies.

Those looking to improve their IT skills can now learn more at a Computer Basics event at Care UK’s Scarlet House, on Westward Road, on Thursday 17th June, from 4pm-5.30pm.

Hosted by Adult Education in Gloucestershire, the session aims to show local people just how easy it is to get to grips with the basics of computer use and help novice users to improve their IT skills. The event will be held via Zoom, a user-friendly video conference, and full support and information will be provided on how to take part.

Dot Pye, Home Manager at Scarlet House, said: “Here at Scarlet House, we understand that it can be tricky to keep up with modern technology. With everything going online during the pandemic and the rise of online banking and more, it’s important that everyone has the skills to get by in the digital age.

“It’s not just about games and social media, computers can help with many aspects of life. We live in a digital era, so it’s more important than ever to show just how easy it can be to make the most out of the tools available to us, no matter our age or ability with new technologies.

“We look forward to seeing everyone virtually for what promises to be an informative event.”

For anyone unsure about how to take part in the virtual event, help is at hand. The team at Scarlet House will host the event using Zoom, an online meeting space. Simply call or email Customer Relations Manager, Katerina Pippi, and she will send all the information you’ll need and a link to join the event and can call participants to help set up Zoom ahead of the session.
