The pandemic brought immeasurable challenges to people around the world. How do we get the information we need? How do we stay connected to people while in quarantine? How do I stay active and social?
Now, think about asking yourself these questions as an older adult. There is no doubt this demographic was hit harder than most by the impacts of the coronavirus. But, what we also saw was an inspiring shift in how older adults turned to technology to overcome many of these challenges. Particularly in senior living communities, residents leaned on technology to maintain personal connections, stay up to date on the important information and find creative ways to virtually socialize and connect.
We recently released our Summer 2021 Insights Report, “Trending Technologies To Navigate Life and Work In Senior Living During and Post-Pandemic,” that explores this very topic. We found that residents were leveraging various types of technology to successfully navigate daily life in their communities.
