I’m an assistive technology specialist based in Adelaide, South Australia. “Assistive technology” is the field of using technology to help people overcome a disability.
I help the young and old stay independent, access entertainment and do daily living tasks. The majority of the people I work with are seniors, aged 65+, because it’s very common for people’s eyesight, hearing or bodies to deteriorate with age.
I’m frequently asked the same questions every week by people who are looking for phones, computers, electronic magnifiers, and other technology for themselves or the seniors in their lives. So I’ve created this website to share my recommendations for technology products suitable for seniors and available in Australia.
As I work in this field on a daily basis, I have a unique and qualified perspective to help you find the best seniors technology for YOUR needs.
I have a double degree in Computer Science and Law, and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. I have several years experience working as a computer trainer for seniors and people with vision impairments.
If you need an assistive technology assessment, or want training in computers, iPhones or iPads I am available in Adelaide at a rate of $170 per hour. To contact me, please send me an email via the Contact page of this website.
It might be possible to have this funded through the Aged Care system. If you have an Aged Care Package you could speak to your package provider about that. To learn more about the Aged Care system go to www.myagedcare.gov.au.
