E-Seniors is a non-profit non-governmental organization, founded in 2005 by Monique EPSTEIN, the general manager of the association. E-Seniors aims at fighting e-exclusion by providing access to and training in ICT to seniors and/or disabled people. Its main objectives are:
• Shrinking, and where possible, bridging the digital gap between generations,
• Fighting seniors’ isolation,
• Opening new horizons for efficient use of free time.
Since its creation, E-Seniors has provided courses on ICT use for seniors in various public places. The association is constantly opening new locations all over the region in order to provide a “proximity” service that takes into account the rhythm, interests and needs of its potential audience. Through its work with elderly people, the organization also tries to increase awareness about the importance of ICT solutions in everyday life. E-Seniors proposes also interactive gaming activities in residences for elderly, retirement homes and day-care centres. Knowing the challenges faced by seniors, (healthy or dependant ones), E-Seniors invests resources in developing new applications and services to enable independent living as well as helping keep their physical and mental health.
E-Seniors has a substantial experience in European projects related to ICT-tools designed for seniors and for active and healthy ageing.
