Being an "elder" today is a little different than it was for our parents. The world really is different but so is today's' elder. Many of us are tech savvy (as you are reading this right now) but even with that savvy-ness, the internet can be a frustrating and risky spot to navigate these days.
There’s a lot in there that we don’t care about or even want to run into at the best of times. Today’s Elder was created to provide a “safe place” for us over 55 and their caring families to access information, insight, entertainment, events, and most of all “connection” in one place they can look forward to, at any time.
The Inside Story Behind Today's Elder
On December 22, 2022, the popular internet radio broadcaster, RadioDowntown.ca's "Super 70's Show with John K" caught up with our Founder, Jim Ellis, to find out what Today's Elder is all about, the inspiration behind it and the reason its members are loving it.
From the Founder
As a fully qualified "elder", I've been involved in a number of projects over the years, and have learned a lot about our demographic.... what we like, what we don't like, and what's we've developed when it comes to trust. Today's Elder was developed with that knowledge, not only reflecting what this demographic wants, but what I would want personally.
Ultimately, it will be you, our members, who will decide if we've hit the mark for what your wants are from Today's Elder, and we ask that you let us know regularly how we're doing and how we can do better.
