Ways to Thrive in Old Age: Stay Social
Social connection contributes to better health and longer life. However, for many seniors, social isolation is a problem as their families get caught up in their own busy lives, and friends move away. As you age, do what you can to stay social. Keeping connected can be as simple as hosting regular family dinners or rekindling old friendships over coffee.
Today, one of the best tools to stay connected, however remotely, is the internet. An easy-to-use smartphone or iPad can be an important investment. If you are unsure, ask your family to help you get online. Learn how to connect via Skype, Facebook, FaceTime, and other communication platforms.
