Steps to overcoming your fear of technology

August 7, 2018

Excited to try out these new IHSS tools, but still anxious about using new technology? Here are some tips for getting started:

  1.  Don’t be afraid to try – If you’re a beginner, start with something small like going to the UDW website and clicking around on some links. Explore. Then you can try something a little more difficult, like downloading the IHSS Help app on your phone.
  2. Be kind to yourself – It’s OK to not be excited about new technology. Don’t be hard on yourself if you make mistakes, and try not to get discouraged. This stuff can take time getting used to!
  3. Ask for help. Your union is here for you! – If you’ve tried it out yourself but still need help, your union is here for you. Just call your local office or stop by. That’s what’s great about being a union member! We can help you sign up for online timesheets, navigate the state’s ETS website, install the IHSS Help app on your phone, and more.

To stay updated on all the latest technology and tools to help make IHSS easier, stay connected with UDW! Visit www.udwa.org and make sure to follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UDW to find out the latest developments and ways you can get involved.
