Technology is not only a tool for connecting older adults with family and friends, but can also be used to deliver health services, prevent social isolation and loneliness, and enhance communication between caregivers, organizations, and communities. This webinar will present on the latest scientific developments in technologies available for older adults, address the myths of older adults and technology use, discuss how to mitigate the effects of normal aging on technology use, and demonstrate how people can utilize technology to help older adults address feelings of loneliness.
Presenters: Karen L. Fortuna, PhD, LCSW, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth College; and Caroline Collins-Pisano, Dartmouth College intern and Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging volunteer
