Seniors, Teens & Technology - Compliments to those who put these together!

And what are we referring to? We are referring to the "Cyber-Seniors – Connecting Generations," 2014 film screening.

Throughout 2014, communities across North America will be hosting screenings of "Cyber-Seniors – Connecting Generations," to help inspire and engage intergenerational audiences to work together for the common cause of helping seniors understand and use technology in everyday life. What a great goal!

The Cyber-Seniors website is host to a number of resources, contest information and updates on how to get involved. Check out the Cyber-Senior website and spread the word - this is a cause worth sharing!

As Seniors Resource Guide finds upcoming film screenings in our local directories we will be posting event information.

Assisted Living & Motorcycle Ride - How often do you see those words together?

Sometimes you just see an event that puts a smile on your face and this is it! Bessie’s Hope has a wonderful fundraiser coming up in Denver on 5-31-14 called the "2-Wheel Fantasy – Poker Run and Rides for Residents Fundraiser for Bessie’s Hope." 

This is a motorcycle ride that combines the scenic beauty of Denver with stops at a few assisted living communities and nursing homes. Biker volunteers can take elders for a ride around the parking lot if they want or just stop and meet with the residents. Take a look at a video from last year's event - Click Here.
