Times sure have changed with social distancing. Many of us haven’t been able to enjoy some of our favorite experiences as we attempt to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 Not being able to go shopping or deliver gifts without putting people at risk can make gift-giving a bit harder.
However, there has never been a better time to gift — an experience. Experiences make excellent gifts because they are lifelong memories that stay with us forever, and can go on to teach us a new skill, help us learn something more about ourselves, or help us discover a new passion.
GetSetUp provides remote live training on online tools and apps geared towards the 50+ demographic. Many 50+ adult learners are often less tech-savvy than younger members of the population and are especially vulnerable to being disconnected. GetSetUp classes focus on fun engaging activities from touring museums virtually to health and wellbeing classes with topics such as meditation or healthy eating.
GetSetUp offers Guides to train their peers in online tools and other classes to help them feel more independent, up-to-date, healthier and happier. Classes are taught as overviews, small groups, or one-to-one classes so that students learn at their own pace in a supportive environment with peers to socialize and share ideas with. These classes help to ensure learners understand tools, apps, and technologies to ensure confidence, ease of use, and independence that ultimately lead to greater overall wellbeing.
