CYA Tips: Helping Baby Boomers Keep Up with Technology

Technology has not been around since forever and has only just started advancing at a rapid rate. Therefore, it’s common for baby boomers to have difficulty understanding it. Technology has conquered nearly every part of our life, and one cannot imagine their day to day life without it anymore.

A significant percentage of older people are still unfamiliar with computers and their benefits. They often expect younger people to show them the ropes and then expect the technology to function with just a click.

Upon finding the technology lifeless and not clicking itself away without their contribution, seniors don’t waste any time exclaiming how they’re old. They explain how their childhoods didn’t revolve around computers and how even schools had no notion of this era back then.

The simple fact remains; like everything requires practice to become a skill, baby boomers need to learn about computers and get better at it by using it regularly.

Here are a few helpful tips from your friendly team at CYA for baby boomers to begin their journey to technological victory:

Tip 1

All baby boomers need to make an effort for starters and build the courage to dive in and do it. They need to override their fear of technology and develop the determination to learn the drills of using it.

Tip 2

Older people must realize how technology facilitates life and must build their confidence and experience by using it daily, not grudgingly and sparingly.

Tip 3

The baby boomers also tend to treat text messages like telegrams. They need to overcome this thinking that they will only text when they have to. Text messages all day increase communication incredibly, more than a phone call now and then can. If only the baby boomers would learn from the younger lot about this trend, they’d see the positive aspects.

Tip 4

Baby boomers must try to fight the internal opposition that keeps them away from trying their hand at technology. There are always technological gadgets going bad or becoming useless if they go wrong with it. At this point, it is noteworthy to mention how warranties with electronics you purchase can eliminate the fear of losing your precious money just because you didn’t know how to use the electronic device correctly. There are always means of covering your investment so that while you learn, you do not have to fear the technology crashing under your inexperience.

Tip 5

Accidental damage is always possible, but even youngsters can make mistakes when using technology. Mistakes are never limited or defined by generations, so why should the baby boomers fear? With accidental warranty coverage from CYA, you will make sure that any faults in your new device will be recoverable, and you will not have to suffer any loss.


Baby boomers are not a distinct category, and it would be best if they realized the potential they all have. There is no age limit to learn and experiment with new things, but it always better to keep up with trends that improve the quality of living, just as technology does. All you need to do is buy warranties with your new electronic devices. Additionally, ensure you have coverage for hardware failure and accidental damages from CYA and learn your way through technology.
