Silly Kids, Apps are for us too
For today’s seniors, it is nearly impossible to avoid technology. Many retirees are learning to be tech-savvy, making full use of these smart phones and tablets. Currently, almost 80 percent of people 65 or older own a cell phone, while more than 60 percent own either a desktop computer or a laptop. “Going mobile” is no longer just for the kids, but a trend which serves to improve the lives of numerous seniors.

A variety of apps exist to aid seniors through daily tasks such as taking pills and keeping track of meals and exercise.

Technology gives seniors a sense of independence, no longer having to forgo privacy by asking a friend or loved one to assist. If family members are concerned about the safety of their loved ones, there are many apps that serve as alert systems.
