"Washington, DC is home to many incredible older adults, who we are proud to work with every day," said Le'Anetta Tolar-Obasanjo, Director of SeaburyDC. "At Seabury Resources for Aging, we know that the Internet and technology usage can play a major role in improving seniors' quality of life and keeping them connected with loved ones. We are proud to partner with Aging Connected and Comcast on today's remote resource fair, and are excited to continue to do our part to help get older adults connected and close the digital divide."
SeaburyDC is a comprehensive program designed to help our older neighbors in the District age with dignity. Through meals, yard work, recreational activities, wellness and fitness classes, and special programs for LGBTQ and visually impaired older adults, SeaburyDC ensures that older D.C. residents are cared for and connected.
