The Sharon at SouthPark residents on PBS Charlotte Carolina Impact

The Sharon at SouthPark is thrilled to be the focus of a recent PBS Charlotte Carolina Impact segment on seniors and technology. Reporter Rochelle Metzger spoke to several residents including Bill Fox, Mary Hammond, Freda Nicholson and Lynda Opdyke as well as Director of Vitality & Well-Being Jessica Bourque and Director of IT Jody Eason-Williams.

The report details how the pandemic drove seniors to adapt to technology changes and the overall effect it has on their lives and connection to family and community.

“It is often mistakenly assumed that few people are interested in learning new things past a certain age – but that’s never been our experience,” says Angela Rigsbee, President and CEO of The Sharon at SouthPark. “Technology may change rapidly but this piece demonstrates that there is a general paradigm shift regarding the abilities and interests of older adults.”
