Technology self-help groups by older adults for older adults

The project aims to establish technology self-help groups in the city of Rapperswil-Jona, in which older adults support each other in the use of mobile Internet devices in an informal setting. The peer-to-peer situation contributes to self-empowerment as well as to increased social contacts.

The project is carried out in cooperation with the Age and Health Office of the City of Rapperswil-Jona. It is expected to yield conclusions or guidance for successful replicability of the project in other communities.
