FALLBROOK – The Foundation for Senior Care will sponsor a series of computer classes and workshops taught by volunteer computer technicians at the Crestview Estates Clubhouse. Registration is now open for May and June classes at http://www.foundationforseniorcare.org or at the Foundation for Senior Care at 135 S. Mission Road in Fallbrook at the corner of Mission Road and Fig Street from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The seven classes being offered are "Smartphone & Tablet (Androids)," "iPad & iPhone," "Google Maps," "Solving Spreadsheet Problems," "Basic Computer File Management," "Cutting the Cable Cord," "Taking and Managing Photos on Your Android Smartphone." Workshops dates are May 13 through June 27.

Classes are one, two or four weeks long and meet for two hours once a week and cost between $10-$40, depending on the length of the class. Class size is limited, and they will fill up quickly. Classes are held at Crestview Estates Clubhouse, 1120 E. Mission Road. For a detailed description of classes or more information, visit http://www.foundationforseniorcare.org, or call Foundation for Senior Care at (760) 723-7570.

"We are excited to offer a new class, 'Cutting the Cable Cord,' which will discuss the various ways to view programming on your TV without being connected to a cable company TV package," longtime volunteer Obie Weeks said. "Our smartphone classes are the most popular. It doesn't matter what type of phone you have, iPhone or Android, we have a class to cover it and help seniors become comfortable with their devices."

In addition to computer classes, the Foundation for Senior Care hosts a weekly open lab on Fridays called Fix it Friday where seniors can walk in for help with software or hardware problems. There is no charge for this service, but donations are encouraged.
