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:
- to bridge the digital gap between generations,
- to foster seniors’ social participation,
- to propose activities encouraging seniors to spend actively their free time.
Since its creation, E-Seniors have provided courses on ICT usage for seniors in various public locations and 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 for elderly people and with them the organization also tries to increase awareness about the importance of ICT solutions in everyday life. E-Seniors propose also interactive gaming activities in residences for the elderly, retirement homes and day-care centres. Knowing the challenges facing seniors, healthy or dependant, E-Seniors invest resources in developing new applications and services to enable independent living as well as helping keep their physical and mental health.
