Cyber Seniors | Connect Older Adults Through Tech
Social media can allow people of all generations to feel connected, communicate, and keep your mind active. Technology can open up a whole new world for older adults.

More and more seniors are using social media through their smart phone, a tablet or their computer and recognizing the following benefits:

  1. Stay connected with family members and friends. Video chatting networks like Skype and Zoom allow you to be part of their lives. Picture sharing through sites like Instagram can help to see photos of grandchildren or friends.
  2. Health benefits Reduces isolation, loneliness, and depressive symptoms. Additionally, as the mind is being used, it stimulates cognition, improving memory and connecting them to the present.
  3. Connecting Generations Teaching an older family member how to use technology and connecting them with social networking, gives younger generations a chance to share time with their older adult.  Once they are established, they can stay connected much easier. 
  4. Pursuing Interests Learn about topics you enjoy such as cooking or cars.  Explore a country or culture that you’ve always wanted to visit. 
  5. Get local news. Stay in touch locally with breaking news, weather, sports and events. You could even share your own photos of things like graduation, vacations and your pets with many local news stations.

  1. Facebook
