I hope you’re all enjoying your new-found freedom under COVID-19 Level 2 and that you’ve been able to hook-up with family and friends again. It certainly reminds me how important daily routines and interactions with other people are to us all.
Things have been busier than ever at SeniorNet with a whole raft of online Workshops being run during (and beyond) Lockdown. Without exception, they’ve proven popular with our members and I suspect a welcome distraction from one’s own company! Over 300 people have taken part in Zoom Meetings since we started back in late March.
Our Committee met last Thursday and it’s been agreed that The Learning Centre will remain closed for the next few weeks. Taking into account all the complex factors, we’ve scheduled to reopen for onsite Courses and Workshops in Term 3 and planning is already underway to ensure a safe environment for everyone attending.
Please make a note in your diary to attend our AGM at The Learning Centre on Wednesday 26th June at 1.30pm.
We are very privileged to have Grant Sidaway, the Executive Director of SeniorNet Inc as our Guest Speaker. Grant is retiring at the end of this year so this is probably your last chance to hear him speak.

Glynis Denz, Healthcare Field Officer, from Bupa Care Services came and spoke to us recently about the Bupa range of unobtrusive emergency sensors. These monitored sensors can provide around the clock reassurance for everyone – helping carers to cope, giving peace of mind to more distant family, and most importantly, keeping the person living at home safe.
