Senior CompuCare is a company dedicated to the enlightenment of senior citizens enabling them to become more comfortable and knowledgeable in the usage of the latest in computer technology for their convenience and personal enjoyment.

As a Desert Storm United States Air Force Veteran, when Didier decided to embark on starting “Senior CompuCare” some six years ago, it was to be a veteran owned/operated business with a mission to help seniors learn day-to-day technology in the comfort of their own environment. That he accomplished.

As time has passed, Didier saw there was another great need – an opportunity to help fellow veterans in their transitioning from military to civilian life. Veterans needed to learn the same day-to-day technology, but as a means for being better equipped to enter the civilian workforce. Senior CompuCare’s mission as a company was evolving.

Didier created a new division, “SeniorCompuCareVets.com”, with its mission to emphasize working with veterans, designed to help veterans and veteran organizations – to train veterans and veterans with various types of cognitive, physical and sensory disabilities in their specific needs. This specialized training design would allow disabled veterans to acquire skills to access and manage information consistent with their individual goals. This too he accomplished.

Today, Senior CompuCare provides its unique method of technology training and related services for businesses, organizations and youth; and has expanded into a nationwide company, offering licensing opportunities.Didier is a U.S. Air Force Veteran, honorably discharged after serving our country in the Gulf War. He successfully graduated from Hawaii Pacific University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Administration / Marketing and an M.B.A. in International Business
