An Easy Way to Keep your Kitchen Safe

Many home fire injuries happen as a result of leaving cooking equipment unattended. The CookStop is a really clever device that uses motion sensors to detect when the cook has wandered away from the kitchen. If you forget that you have left the stove on, CookStop will automatically shut off the stove for you.

To learn more please give us a call, or reach out to CookStop at 669-900-4920.

Free Technology Workshop

One of the dedicated volunteers at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center  is offering a free workshop for anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with new – and old – tech. He is hoping to attract seniors and people who work with seniors and who may often be called upon to help them with their tech.

See the attached flyer for more details!
