Even the Elderly use the internet, here are some of the interesting facts,
There is still a huge gap between the number of younger and older internet users. However, more seniors are using the internet than you probably think. If you don’t believe us, feel free to check the infographic below provided by MedAlertHelp.
One of the biggest troubles that older people face is loneliness. Many will live alone and find it difficult to get out and talk to people. That’s where the internet comes in.
At least 75% of seniors are using it to communicate with friends and family, either through video calls or email and social media platforms.
It is an excellent way for those who are unable to see their family very often to talk to them, and generally feel more connected to the outside world. Plus, they don’t have to just communicate with their old friends and family. The internet also presents an opportunity for them to connect to other like-minded people, whether that may be an individual looking for a friendly voice or someone with similar hobbies and interests.
Although using the internet will not cure loneliness completely, it can definitely help people feel less isolated.
Of course, this is just one of the many benefits that the internet can bring to the older generation. They simply need to build up the confidence and put in the effort to learn how to use it.
