Technology For Seniors: 3 Must-Have's

Posted by Ruby Cemental on Mar 14, 2017 5:30:00 PM

Senior_holding_cell_phone-LR.jpgYoung people tend to view technology as part of life's basic necessities. But many older ones view all of these new gadgets as confusing and unessential. If you're a senior that's at least willing to consider making use of some technological devices, here are 3 that could greatly enhance your life.

  • Smartphone. Gone are the days when phones simply made and received calls. They now have calendars to help you organize your appointments. They have a GPS system that you can use to get step-by-step directions. And they offer what many people can't live without - the ability to capture and store pictures and videos.
  • Fitbit or another activity tracker. They do so much more than count steps. You can use them to monitor and record your heart rate, keep an eye on how you're sleeping, alert you to phone calls, and more.
  • TV Ears. Do you have trouble hearing the TV and tend to increase the volume so much that it makes others complain? This lightweight, wireless headset allows you to listen at your comfort level while leaving the TV in the hands of other viewers. The foam ear tips also reduce room noise so you can focus on the program.

Why not get started by asking your family to help you choose a good smartphone? Once you've mastered that, you'll be ready to move on to another device.
