The Microsoft Store at the Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, California, co-hosted an event for Boomers and Seniors, with Points of Life.
The event helped acquaint Boomers and Seniors with the many products and services available to families who are looking for resources for healthfulness, communication and planning for the future.
The Microsoft Store helped seniors and their familes experience and learn about Microsoft products and services. Topics they addressed included Xbox sports and fitness programs, Skyping with friends, family and medical services, using Windows Phone.
Points of Life helped families connect with the resources they need to plan and manage life’s stages and to retain and control their lifestyles. Their teams of professionals and specialists from legal, care, cost of care, financial services and others helped educate seniors using “Real Life” vignettes.
Two more events are scheduled in the coming months. The West Valley Mall Microsoft Store will host the event again on Saturday, November 10 from 11 am to 4 pm and then at the Stanford Shopping Center Microsoft Store, on Saturday December 1st from 1pm to 3pm.
