As a leading nonprofit in the aging space, we are innovating a new generation of program approaches and design. Through our flagship program, Senior Planet, we work closely with older adults to create extraordinary experiences in-person and online, helping seniors overcome technology resistance.
By listening – really listening – and working with older people for many years, OATS has gained a deep, rich understanding of older people’s needs, obstacles and dreams. We are bridging the divide between what tech can do and what seniors can do through program delivery and partnership, and guiding technology developers in how to build products for older adults, and creating broader adoption of mainstream technologies.
