Seniors Living in a World of Technology
The UK like may other countries is dealing with an aging population. Fortunately, many seniors who have remained active and perhaps stayed in the workforce longer have adapted to various forms of technology like digital technology.
There are still many seniors who are limited in their knowledge and use of technology like information technology that can be of great benefit to them in their senior years.
Ironically, most seniors are well versed and comfortable with using communication technology like that which is present in the cell phones. Even if they use if for nothing more than the convenience of it being mobile it is still an important piece of technology for them.
More seniors need to be able to make use of their computers as a way of communication and also as a means of socializing. So many elderly people are basically cut off from the rest of the world that it has affected their quality of life. Simple technology such as being able to send and receive emails, or to surf the web for information of interest can make a dramatic but positive change in the lives of seniors.
