Technology and Elderly Well-Being
Technology impacts human life. The well-being of elderly persons may be impacted by the advances of today’s technology such as smartphones, social networking,and wearable devices. A sample of 120 persons who are 55 years of age or above participated in an online survey to probe the relationship between today’s technology and the well-being of elderly people. Data obtained from the survey suggest that elderly individuals who report using technology are more likely to believe that using technology can lead to better physical, psychological, and social health than elderly individuals who do not use technology.
