MORE SENIORS USING iPADS

Apr 2nd, 2012 | By Sharon Shaw Elrod MSW EdD | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Internet resources for senior citizens continue to increase by the day. Baby Boomers are retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day, and they add to the numbers. Seniors began using the Net 15 years ago to communicate with close friends and family by email, and to do simple things like write letters to be printed and sent by snail mail.

How that scene has changed! We seniors are now using the World Wide Internet to pay our bills, receive e-statements from every business/company/office that sends us bills, read newspapers, research information about issues that concern us, telephone friends/family, instant message friends/family, share photos and videos, find places on maps, create our own websites… well, this list could go on for a long time. And there is a relatively new device on the market that makes all of this even easier. It’s the iPad.
