When Jack York first started bringing computers into senior living communities in the 1990s, he never could have imagined the ways elders use technology to stay connected with loved ones and their interests today – particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But even back then, when PCs took up entire desks and internet connections required a landline, the goal was the same as it is now: keeping elders in touch with the people and ideas that give them joy and fulfillment.
York joins the podcast to discuss his career in elder-friendly tech, including his current role as founder and chief storyteller at TaleGate – a unique company that brings a mobile video studio to eldercare communities around the country, enabling people to tell their life stories and share their unique perspectives with their loved ones and the world.
