Seniors can use digital tools to connect with family and friends.
Adopting a digital social life may be more challenging for older people who struggle with new technologies. However, recent research has demonstrated that digital technologies may provide the elderly with the following emotional and mental benefits:
- Seniors may lower their depression by 20% by surfing the internet.
- According to a University of Arizona study, seniors who use Facebook have a 25% boost in mental "updating" abilities, improving their working memory.
- Another research found that older people who browse social networking sites such as Facebook had a good emotional experience as indicated by respiration rates, brain activation, 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.
