Coping with Grief through Technology
张女士因为她儿子2019年过世, 成为愈援丧痛支援的对象。愈援通过了乐龄E-时代来帮助张女士缓解哀伤。她在学习浏览脸书和YouTube视频时可以学习如何下载和储存她儿子的相片，视频和经文， 借此得到慰藉。
Mdm Chang is a client of Grief Matters who lost her son in 2019. Project E-Seniors was introduced by the Grief Matters team as a timely tool for her to navigate her grief and help with the grieving process. As Mdm Chang learned to use Facebook and YouTube, she was able to save her son’s treasured photos and videos, as well as viewing Scriptures, which comforted her.
Together through Technology
梁女士和她67岁的妹妹在 “阻断期间” 前是快乐中心! 的活跃会员。当她们必须保持社交距离时，她们的生活有了巨大的改变。除了不能见面，她们也不能参加快乐中心! 的活动。
Mdm Lang Aing and her sister, Mdm Geek Boi (67), used to be active members of GoodLife! before “Circuit Breaker” kicked in. The social distancing measures greatly impacted their lives – not only were they unable to meet each other, they also could no longer partake in the activities at the GoodLife! Centre. Initially, they were indifferent to the persuasion of the GoodLife! staff to learn new mobile applications, but the staff’s persistence helped the sisters to pluck up their courage to learn how to use Zoom. Today, physical distance no longer deters them from leading a socially active lifestyle through online activities.
Language No Longer a Barrier to Digital Literacy
Age and language are no barrier if you are determined to learn. A good role model of this is Mr Cheah! Mr Cheah wanted to master the use of WhatsApp to keep in contact with his friends, and he jumped at the chance when Project E-Seniors was introduced to him. At 85 years old and understanding very little Mandarin, Mr Cheah was able to learn how to use WhatsApp through one-on-one teaching conducted in Teochew. He was very grateful to be able to connect and communicate with his friends living abroad through Project E-Seniors.
Call any of the GoodLife! centres to enquire or register for a complimentary session.
