Computers have become a familiar part of life for many of us. But for those who have never learned computing or have struggled with traditional computers, enjoying the many benefits computing can offer has been a technological barrier.
Keeping in regular contact with friends and family can prevent loved ones from becoming socially isolated and improves their quality of life in their senior years. Being able to surf the web can promote independence by shopping online, and having the ability to gather information on any topic, can help keep seniors engaged in the world.
Telikin was designed specifically for seniors with little or no computer experience. Its easy accessibility is also welcomed by people with various physical and/or cognitive disabilities.
Telikin has a number of features and applications to help seniors easily stay in touch with their loved ones and the world! Our easy photo sharing program, face to face video chat, email, and Quick Links on our starting web page greatly facilitate computer use! Telikin has a sleek touch screen with easy to read graphics, and large navigation buttons that are always visible to the user.
Staff and residents know what an asset a public access computer can be for the community.
