What we're about

This is a group for all seniors looking to know they're old enough to have a past and young enough to have a future - at any age! Just because you've hit the 6th, 7th or even 9th decade of your life, there are still ample ways to make the most of this third act of life, learning, doing and being in ways that enliven you and make you feel alive.

Savvy Senior Computers
Some Savvy Seniors learn how to use computers (smart phones, tablets, readers) or improve their current understanding and skills. Our classes are fun social gatherings that provide important tips and tools on how to use computer devices and surf the Internet safely.

Savvy Seniors and "The Art of Living Longer"
Are you interested in learning about all the latest science, research, tips and tools to achieve a happy, healthy extended lifespan. This is the place for empowering and inspiring information giving you the tools to make a positive impact on your overall wellness.

The Art of Living Longer, A User Manual for Humans FREE LECTURE SERIES

The Art of Living Longer is a User Manual for Humans... why... because we don't have one! When you buy a vacuum, or a car or a toaster you get a manual with all the important maintenance and upkeep required to keep that machine running at peak efficiency for as long as possible. But when you have a baby, THEY JUST HAND IT TO YOU! Like we know what to do with this thing!! In eons gone by, the user manual was the elders, whose job was to raise the young and teach them the ways of their people. We have lost this connection and now get most of our information from pharmaceutical and food manufacturers who tell us what they think we should eat. The problem is that their recommendations are fueled more by their profit than by human health. There is so much conflicting information out there on human health and wellness that it is confusing and contradictory. In The Art of Living Longer, I delve in and deconstruct they myths to leave you with solid information on which you can make informed decisions about your health. Each month we cover a different subject in 'edu-taining' lectures that inspire, empower and entertain you with the latest on human health. Sometimes the lectures are pure fun and entertainment and sometimes they are designed to leave you thinking about ways to make your life happier and more meaningful. The Savvy Senior Credo I'm old enough to have a past and young enough to have a future. I don’t know my expiration date, so I commit to live fully, to let go, forgive and love; to live mindfully into my future, making choices for my mind, body & spirit that will help me achieve a happier, healthier, longer life. Join me each second Tuesday monthly at The Phoenix at Delray and be inspired to live your best life!

Savvy Senior COMPUTER CLUB - Smart Phones/Tablets - 1:00 PM at The Phoenix

3rd Thursday Monthly at 1:00 PM at The Phoenix at Delray. Get your smart phone/tablet questions answered and learn all the cool stuff you can do with them. ------------------------------ In 2013, I began my work with seniors teaching how to use technology - computers, phones, tablets and readers. Since that time, there has been a noticeable movement towards mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) among seniors. Given their portability and ease of use, they are preferable over bulky laptops or stationery desktops. With this in mind, I have decided to make the Tuhursday afternoon classes at The Phoenix into smart phone/tablet instruction. This is so important for your cognitive health and I urge you to join us. Come to one class or come to them all. 3rd Thursday at 1:00 PM monthly at The Phoenix at Delray - Free In this series of classes, we will systematically go over all the features of your device so you get to personalize it for your needs and interests.
