Xàbia’s Department of Attention to the Elderly is offering a basic financial training workshop for the elderly today, Tuesday 24th May at 6.30pm in the cafeteria of the Social Centre: No prior registration is necessary.

The purpose of the course is for attendees to learn how to manage and carry out the basic banking services at the ATM that in recent times the banks have stopped offering free of charge at the teller window.

The training will be given by municipal staff and will try to bring new technologies closer to a group such as retirees who are, in some cases, unaccustomed to handling them and who are increasingly in need of learning how to use them to carry out day-to-day tasks.

This training is response to the decision of the banks to force the elderly into moving in a complex and cumbersome world that, on many occasions, reduces their willingness to continue carrying out the operations that for years they have been able to do with the help of the financial staff.
