I just took my very first computer class with Sarah. Not only is she an excellent teacher but the class was so much fun! I left feeling confident and like I could get on a computer. Sarah (the instructor) takes her time, uses humor and makes you actually like being on a computer. I didn't even want to work on a computer but living in the age we do today I was forced into it while my family and friends are all communicating that way now. I will be back to Action to Older Persons for many more classes and tutoring. This is the best agency!

I came in with my mom for Medicare help and the services that were provided to my mother were amazing! The woman that helped us was kind and patient as my mother could not hear very well. The woman also told us about computer classes that were offered there and we are going to look into that also. I don't know what we would have done without Action for Older Persons.
