The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) will begin holding tablet computer classes at the Bowling Green location at 305 N. Main St. in February, to better connect those in the area with the latest technology.
All ages are welcome to explore the world of tablets, including the Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle. Tablet computers may seem confusing or difficult to use, but the Wood County Committee on Aging is here to help reduce the anxiety that many feel when using technology. Whether class members already have a tablet or want to get one, there is always something to learn about these smart devices. Seniors can either bring their own device or use one belonging to the senior center.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The heavy snows and extremely cold air mass which invaded Ohio during the past 10 days saw residents coping with sub-zero temperatures and extreme wind chill values across much of the state, according to the National Weather Service.
It's been a reminder that for a variety of reasons, older adults may have a harder time adjusting to extreme conditions. Older adults lose body heat more quickly and are more susceptible to hypothermia.
The Ohio Department of Aging encourages all Ohioans to check in on older loved ones and neighbors during cold temperatures and snowstorms this winter to ensure that they have the resources they need to stay safe and healthy.
