Technology: Your Aging Loved One's New Companion

One of the lesser-known risks of senior health is social isolation. While it isn't thought about much, it's most certainly not any more dangerous.

In today's age, there is little excuse for seniors to become isolated. This is unnecessary, because our lives aren't any busier than previous decades. We all know that couldn't be any further than the truth. Instead, today's solution to isolation is technology.

Thanks to such innovations as smartphones, texting, video chatting, social media, and voice command tools, we can stay in touch with our elders like never before. In fact, even when we aren't around, tools like Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, and other "robots" can be a friendly voice for them to speak to. With just a command of a voice, these virtual assistants can become an unlikely friend.

Medical Express explains that seniors that use technology have been proven to have higher levels of mental and physical well-being even when they are over 80 years old. It stimulates, motivates, and innovates in new ways we've never thought possible before.

Even the most basic of today's technology like Google's search engine has been proven to show elders a whole new world of information. Netflix can allow seniors to watch some of their old favorite shows and find new ones. Pandora and Spotify can help them listen to their favorite melodies and tunes.

Move over, Millennials! It's the seniors' turn to try technology!
