Now more than ever, aging adults are taking advantage of what technology has to offer. They are logging onto computers and tabloid devices to use what feeds most of our information these days, the Internet. A savvy tool that is relied upon these days, we take advantage of the great resources it has to offer, such as social media, which helps to keep us connected with one another on a daily basis.
SERC is launching a new research project about Online Elder Circles. An elder circle is a facilitated small group of older adults who meet at regular intervals to explore and share ideas related to the experience of growing older and living in old age. We are excited to be testing this program online, so people can participate from wherever they are!
If you are 65+, have basic computer knowledge and regular access to the Internet we would love to have you participate in this study. Please let us know if you’d like to be a member of the first-ever Online Elder Circle!
