Teach a Senior to Video ChatTechnology is a great way to connect with others. But not everyone knows how to use features like video chat. If you know a senior who doesn’t know how, help them learn!
Your Care Challenge:
Many seniors are whizzes at video calls. But not everyone has mastered this feature. Help someone learn this new skill so they can stay connected to friends and family.
Remember these 3 tips when you teach someone how to use video chat for the first time:
- Pick the easiest method. Try starting with functionality that is built into a phone, tablet or app they already use. Here are a few popular options for video chats: Facebook Messenger, FaceTime, WhatsApp, and Google Duo or Hangouts. There are many more options as well.
- Send directions. Make a step-by-step instruction sheet and send it to them. Use screenshots to go along with the steps.
- Practice and patience. Go slowly and walk them through each step. Don’t assume the person knows the lingo, either. Be patient and encouraging as they learn this new skill!
