GLUU Society

https://gluusociety.org/

The Canadian nonprofit on a mission to help older adults use technology to stay happy, healthy & connected.
We make digital skills stick.
Digital skills have never been more critical, especially for seniors. But technology is only useful if you know how to use it. That’s where we come in.

We offer free digital skills training for all Canadian seniors.

Since 2015, we have helped over 16,000 seniors learn to love their technology. Whether it’s mobile devices, computers, wearable's, smart home tech, or health technology – we’re the glue that brings it all together.

 

Online Activities, Learning and Wellness 

There are many online activities available for Seniors from Yoga, and Physical Fitness to Learning a New Skill or Language!

Below you will find some sites we have selected that we think you might enjoy! If you have any you would like to share with others please contact us and we will review them!

 

E-Library: The Okanagan Regional Library subscribes to a variety of online resources. To use these eResources, you will need your library card barcode number and PIN code. If you do not have a library card, learn how you can join the library.

 

Active Aging Canada: Active Aging Canada strives to promote a society where all adult and older adult Canadians are leading active lifestyles that contribute to their overall well-being.

 

We are looking for volunteers!

NexusBC relies heavily on the participation of volunteers.  Positions include driving seniors to appointments or for grocery shopping. Volunteers will receive reimbursement for fuel.  If you have a green thumb or have a knack for fixing things, volunteers are also needed to do yard work and minor home repair. We also have positions available for friendly visitors who would enjoy spending an hour or two a week with a senior.  If you can help with this program, please fill out a Volunteer Application Form (pdf) and phone 250.545.0585 to speak with a Program Coordinator.
