Home technology assistance in Mississauga, Oakville, and West GTA
Need help setting up or using your phone, tablet, computer, or smart home device? Do you want to organize and share photos and documents? Do you want to make sure family members can access important medical information quickly if needed? Do you feel like you are falling behind with today’s technology? I can help.
Here are some of the services I offer.
Share medical records for quick access by family members
If you are rushed to the hospital, will your family members be able to access the relevant medical records that the doctors need? Setting up shared cloud storage of medical records allows family members to provide accurate information to the medical team when you need it the most. This can be done securely using cloud storage providers. Click here to learn more.
Slide show of pictures for grandparents
If your parents would love to see current pictures of their grandkids, I can help you set up a shared album that you and your siblings can drop the latest photos in and they will display in a slide show for your parents on their smart device screen or iPad (even an old iPad that you aren’t using any more).

1-on-1 technology coaching for 50+
If you are over 50 like I am, you might want someone to help you learn how to get the most from your technology with a focus on connecting instead of gaming. I can help you in your home to get more familiar with the devices you have so you can do the things you want to do.
Set up a new phone/tablet
I can help you set up a new phone or tablet, including setting up your contacts, email, calendar, and other apps.
Set up smart home devices
Smart switches, plugs, cameras, and screens can help your home work better for you. I can help you get these devices set up and working.
Video calling with family & friends
Having a video call with grandkids or long-distance friends is a great way to stay in touch. I can help you get this set up on your device and learn how to use it.
Cloud backup of computers to keep documents and photos safe
If you have valuable documents and cherished photos on your Windows or Mac computer and want to make sure they don’t get lost due to a computer failure or other disaster, I can help you set up a cloud backup service that securely stores all your files offsite and makes them accessible no matter what happens to your computer. Read more about the service I recommend.
Setting up a Rogers or Bell TV or Internet box
These days a technician doesn’t come to your house to set up your TV or Internet service from Rogers or Bell. You are expected to do it yourself. I can save you the frustration and come to your home and set it up for you.
Mounting a TV
If you have moved or rearranged your furniture, your TV may not be in a spot that is easy to see. I can help by installing an adjustable stand or wall mounting your TV. Click here to learn more.
