Digital Tools Help Seniors Connect to Family and Friends
Many seniors find it hard to give into digital social life, it can be difficult for them to use the tools needed. However, recent studies have shown the following emotional and mental benefits digital tools can have on the elderly:
- Surfing the internet can reduce depression in Seniors by 20%. *
- A University of Arizona study finds seniors who use Facebook showed a 25% increase in mental “updating” skills – which is essentially when they are 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 the dilation of pupils. **
