LOACC offers additional resource: Senior Planet
Senior Planet if you never heard of it is a dynamic website offering varied platforms "to learn, work, create, and thrive in todays' digital age."
For example, they offer a Holistic Wellness Discussion Group, lessons on how to work smart TVs and instructions of ride sharing apps, all for free. Senior Planet also has a book club, this month they have selected "Born a Crime" by Trevor Noah, a fabulous book about the author's life in South Africa. After each week's reading Senior Planet opens a website where readers can have a conversation and comment on the book.
In 2017, Senior Planet published a provocative article by Erica Manfred, titled "The Beauty of Aging Bodies." The article reads like an interview with the photographer Jade Beall coupled with her pictures of willing volunteers who allowed their aging bodies to be photographed.
Senior Planet is a place to learn and be exposed to thought provoking ideas, and creative people, a place that encourages growth no matter your age. Senior Planet even offers a National Tech Hotline for your technology questions at 920-666-1959, I called it and got a real live person! The hours of the hotline are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). Senior Planet is a dynamic resource to explore and utilize and being stuck at home is a perfect time to explore Senior Planet.
