Buddy Willett, Morning Pointe of Clinton resident, is like many of today’s seniors. He owns an iPad, desktop computer and smartphone — all of which he is quite comfortable using.

Willett is among many older adults who are learning to embrace today’s technology. And during National Assisted Living Week in September, Morning Pointe is helping more seniors do the same.

Jennifer Dancu, with Social Media 4 Seniors — a company that helps aging adults in Knox County become acclimated to today’s technology — will visit the assisted living community on Wednesday, September 14.

The residents will explore Skype, Facetime, text messaging and other applications to keep connected with their loved ones.
