What Studies Show About Elderly Social Participation

  • When it comes to healthy aging, social participation is a determinant. But the truth is, as people age, social participation decreases which also increases their risk for social isolation. That’s why studies point out that social participation should be a key portion of the services offered towards the elderly in order to foster their well-being and health.
  • In a different study, the positive emotional experience was felt by seniors when they engage in social networking sites such as Facebook as evidenced by pupil dilation, brain stimulation, and breathing rates.
  • In a study conducted by the University of Arizona showed that seniors have improved working memory by as much as 25% just by using Facebook since they need to mentally update their skills.

Because of this program, I was able to experience two of the greatest joys in life – becoming a grandmother and seeing my son become a new father. Skyping and Facebooking with my son and his family are now a normal part of my life. It helps me feel like I’m still an important part of their lives even though I’m miles and miles away.
