TECHNOLOGY FOR SENIORS
Our Technology for Seniors kiosk provides free one-on-one tutorials for seniors who would like to learn more about how the internet can help to stay in touch with friends and family, and to access the wealth of information available online. Tuition is provided in basic computer skills, internet access and email. Beginners are always very welcome. Our volunteer tutors will also provide advice on dealing with the challenges presented by new technologies. We can help seniors to master their laptops, tablets, iPads, smartphones and other devices. Our kiosk features three computers with internet access which are available for use by members of our local community, as well as a number of tablet devices that are available for trial.

CHIT CHAT – CAPALABA
Fortnightly, on Thursday, at the Capalaba Library, RDCOTA volunteers provide a morning tea for seniors who are visiting Capalaba. ‘Chit Chat ’ is in the Art Space, Capalaba Library and provides seniors with respite from shopping, a place to await transport or somewhere to meet other seniors. Entry is through the library or from the walkway near the Council Service desk (look for the signs). The Seniors Chit Chat is open for tea, coffee and refreshments from 9.30am until 11:30am on the first and third Thursday of each month. All seniors are welcome with a gold coin donation requested to assist with catering.

TOURNAMENT OF THE MINDS
Every month, a number of residents of care facilities in Redland City gather at a host facility for morning tea and a 20 question trivia quiz. These events are coordinated by RDCOTA volunteers and supported by the Management Committee. Transport and morning tea are catered for by participating care facilities with organisational assistance provided by Diversional Therapists who usually prepare the trivia questions which can be quite challenging. These are enjoyable mornings which are supplemented by outside events including a mid-year picnic and a Christmas lunch.
Our thanks to the wonderful volunteers, Diversional Therapists, facilities and local businesses who cooperate to make these social events possible.
Every Friday morning, a group of us meet to chat, laugh and generally talk about whatever comes up. Senior men are invited to join us and to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit. There are no obligations, no pressure to recite or sing and no pressure to attend every Friday – just the opportunity to come along as you please for company, refeshment and a chat.
Men’s Group every Friday meet at the RDCOTA Office – 57 Wynyard Street, Cleveland from 9:30am
