Using new technology may be a difficult learning curve for some seniors but it is an important skill that has been shown to yield enormous benefits both mentally and emotionally to those who are able to adjust:

  • Surfing the internet can reduce depression in Seniors by 20 percent.*
  • A University of Arizona study finds seniors who use Facebook showed a 25 percent improvement in mental “updating” skills - essentially improving their working memory.
  • Another study shows seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook have a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation and pupil dilation.**

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.
