Technology Use and Well-being in Later Life

Technology useThe Stanford Center on Longevity worked in collaboration with Brookdale Senior Living, to explore how technology impacts the every day lives of the nation’s oldest Americans, those 80 and older. We conducted four focus groups on adults 80+, and used this information to develop a survey. We collected data on a national sample of 445 adults age 80+, with the survey field during May and June of 2015. The sample ranged in age from 80 to 93, with an average age of 84. The preliminary results of that survey are highlighted here.
