Computing Seniors

More and more I see computers being used in the homes of senior citizens. The most tech savvy senior I know is over 90 years of age. Her computer space looks like mission control, complete with a scanner, printer, extra-large monitor, and some other black boxes with blinking lights for high-speed internet service.

It’s wonderful! I love computing and wish more of my older family members would try them out. The internet is a great way to keep in touch with family members who live in another state, or even another country.

The most popular programs I use for keeping in touch are e-mail, social media sites like Facebook, and video chatting with Skype or Facetime.

What is your computer of choice? Desktop computer, laptop? Or, perhaps you prefer smaller mobile devices, such as Apple’s iPad or a netbook? What programs do you use the most?
