This is continued feedback on the CAFE group Introduction survey. (see previous posts by clicking on ” CAFE Project ” in the Tag Cloud )
It’s fairly obvious that this group is not representative of the average profile of older people in Coventry. Particularly the older, older people (over 75).
They are more mobile (car ownership), more active (levels of contact with family and friends) and also levels of going out (clubs, societies, groups). In a very positive way they are potentially the early adopters of new ideas (the level of computer awareness and use is relatively high).
The potential of Skype to link people together and of YouTube applications to better inform people, is a great opportunity as yet untapped which could be a key to unlocking Coventry as an “Age Friendly City”.
