Mary Newton runs the Non-Profit Seniors’ Lookout Centre that addresses social isolation and encourages independence and self-reliance by teaching seniors how to use computers so they can connect with other seniors, increase their participation in community/family life and keep well informed about health and education programs.
Mary aims specifically to promote, protect, maintain and strengthen seniors’ self-efficiency and control.
Computer lessons are provided FREE to seniors who hold a pension card. A chat line will open from 9am to 4pm.
Answers to questions are supplied within the shortest time possible.
“We don’t stop living because we’re getting old. We get old because we stop living. Let’s make the Seniors Generation come to life and back each other up rather than depending on others to do things for us. We are not just getting old; we are entering into the generation of a world for seniors. All seniors need a computer and to be connected to the Internet.
As this program will run on donations Mary is asking people to please be generous and help her cover costs and get some assistance. She asks:
“Could you sponsor a SENIOR with a COMPUTER & SOFTWARE to generate THE NEW WORLD for SENIORS who are AGED, FRAIL, ISOLATED, have a DISABILITY, or are Sick or at Risk? Seniors Lookout will respect you and treat you with dignity. Privacy and confidentiality are secured. “
