The growing relationship between seniors and technology
If you still think seniors and technology do not mix, then maybe you should spend some time in a retirement home. Recently, I had the pleasure of doing just that. I was fortunate enough to meet a couple hundred seniors and am grateful for the experience of being able to visit for a few minutes in each of their homes, over the course of a couple days. I was doing some work in a retirement community and spent time personally interacting with these senior folks. It was a wonderful experience tapping into a wealth of knowledge and experiences these residents had over their lifetimes. I was not only able to hear how each one of these seniors feels about technology, but I also noticed as I looked around their homes at the many chargers, tablets, pads, smart phones, streaming video and sound devices, fitness trackers, and computers they use everyday.
