The Seniors Centre welcomed lots of holiday bargain hunters to its annual Christmas bazaar last Saturday. Next up, a free seminar will feature expert speakers on health and technology at the Centre on Dec. 6.

A technology and health forum is being hosted by Thorold’s Age-Friendly committee and the Thorold Seniors Centre, at 8 Carleton Street South.

Anyone who’d like to learn more about health and technology for seniors is welcome to attend.

Failing to keep track of all your online accounts and assets could cause headaches for family members trying to piece together your digital legacy—all your accounts, blogs, social networking identities and digital files that will be left online when you die.

Digital consultant Mark Kawabe will kick off the morning seminar from 9:10 to 9:45 a.m., explaining ways of Managing Your Digital Legacy.

Marilee Stitches-White, manager of clinical nutrition at Niagara Health and Savannah Bucella, a dietician intern, will share their expertise on Nutrition for Older Adults, from 10 to 10:45 a.m.

Finally, Sime Pavlovic, chief information officer at Niagara Health, will describe How Technology is Changing Health Care, to conclude the session from 11:15 a.m. to noon.

Doors open at 8:30 a.m.

There will be breaks in between speakers, and limited seating, so participants are asked to register from noon to 4 p.m. weekdays by visiting the Seniors Centre or calling and leaving their name at 905-227-2161.
