Many older people are discovering the benefits of using computers and the Internet.
Older people and the Internet
Older people may not have used the Internet much at work or home, but they may have seen their family or friends get real value and fun out of being online. Some really useful things for older people include:
catching up with news and information
keeping in touch with families and friends
learning new skills and subjects
even helping their grandchildren with homework research
Googling is good for the ageing brain
There is interesting research to suggest that using the Internet and Google searching is good for you, see research on the benefit of computer use by older people*.
In May each year, Hampshire runs introduction to the Internet sessions across the County, in many Libraries, Schools and Community Centres.
