Tech Connect

COA provides refurbished pre-loved tablets, or brand new tablets on a free three month loan. These tablets are loaded with pre-paid SIM cards, internet connection, pre recorded "how to" topics, and appropriate programs to help seniors staying in their own homes to connect via video phone calls to family and friends. 

"how to" videos include:

  • accessing Service NSW, MyGov and MyAgedCare websites
  • using applications
  • signing up for websites
  • using online banking and bill paying
  • finding the right information on the internet
  • using email, skype, zoom, and more
  • connecting to friends and family on social media

So if you have wanted to start using technology at home this is a great gateway to begin exploring the digital world, and see what you think before you spend the money on a tablet or laptop.
