Get Connected with Elder Tree!

posted Sep 14, 2015, 1:05 PM by Kim Cobb
Elder Tree provides older adults an opportunity to connect, learn about local events, track their health and give back. It’s a website just for Wisconsin seniors, even those with no computer experience! 

Members like the large print and easy to follow screens-many had never used a computer before joining! The free, secure website has no ads and does not share or sell information about members. Best of all, Elder Tree members report significant improvement in their quality of life and less loneliness. Learn what Elder Tree members have to say about the website.  

“We know online safety is a concern,” said Leslie Fijalkiewicz, Director of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Barron, Rusk and Washburn Counties. “As a safeguard, member enrollment is finalized through the ADRC or Elder Tree staff, and no one outside Elder Tree can see or contact a member unless specifically invited by that member. “

The ADRC will introduce the website and enroll interested seniors at sessions throughout the county this fall, as noted below.
