Streamlining Senior Health And Wellness Information
Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Oneida County Office for the Aging is taking senior health and wellness information to the digital age, and seniors don't have to worry about using a personal computer at home.
Office for the Aging Director Michael Romano says AgeNet allows information to be programmed and presented at different times to senior centers and senior clubs across the county. The information can also be simulcast at the same.
For example, the county's Senior Nutrition Program.
"We send someone out to 12 different locations every month. [It's] creative and efficient to be able to broadcast from one senior center and reachout to 12 different locations at the same time," Romano said.
The AgeNet system launched today at Utica Parkway Senior Center. The goal is to add all Oneida County senior centers and clubs to the system.
The digital delivery system will give senior centers a real opportunity to collaborate on programs and information, said Kelly Walters, executive director of the Parkway Senior Center.
