The Benefits of Technology for Seniors
Recent studies show that surfing the internet can reduce depression in older adults by 20 percent*, while using Facebook can improve their working memory, according to a study from the University of Arizona. Studies also show that seniors who visit social networks have a positive emotional experience**.
