SURVEY: Bridging Elderly Digital Divide with mHealth

As seniors age they endure many changes and losses. This can lead to isolation and loneliness. While many younger people are comfortable with mobile technology and the internet a great many older adults are not. This has been referred to as the ‘Digital Divide’ and affects millions in America. I’m working to change that. As President of the Madison College, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society the focus of my HONORS project involves conducting eldercare research in mobile applications for older adults. My team is entering the final stage of this critical research. I am calling upon my LinkedIn network for help with this effort. We are in need of more respondents – please be one or find one. It is hoped our research will lead to the creation of software that will help diminish lonliness and bridge the ‘Digital Divide’.

The mHealth SURVEY Madison College is conducting centers on TWO groups:

  • Those OVER 50 years of age that own a mobile tablet.
  • Those who provide health, housing or wellness services to adults over 62.

Your survey feedback will be used to help Senior Citizens – it is important! Time is short as we are near our data collecting deadline. Please respond ASAP. Do share this critical survey with the relevant audience. The Needs revealed by this eldercare survey will be addressed through the creation of new mobile apps for Seniors developed by my company.
