Established since 2016 & Open to Older Adults in the Greater New York Area:

Search and Care’s “Silver Circles” program has been helping older adults increase their connectivity through the use of technology, in both one-on-one and group sessions. Pre-COVID, these sessions took place in our agency office and directly in clients’ homes.

  • Silver Circles empowers and engages older adults to master technology/learn new skills, increases their connection to others (family/friends, medical providers, and more), increases peer support/camaraderie through group participation, and reduces loneliness and isolation.
  • Components of Silver Circles include:
    • One-On-One Computer Coaching: helping older adults through one-on-one remote or in-person sessions (telephonic and/or via video chat) with learning how to use their devices – computers, tablets, smartphones, etc. – in whatever ways fit each client’s needs and interests
    • Technology Help Events – We try our best to run monthly weekend events where volunteers can assist older adults who bring in their devices.
    • To see our area limits for in-person coaching sessions, please see our catchment area

To learn more about our Silver Circles program, or to inquire about volunteering, contact: Jacob Gonzalez or Michelle Carr, Connectivity Coordinators.
