Pew Report on Older Adults & Technology

According to a recent report by the Pew Research Center (April 2014), "seniors continue to lag behind younger Americans when it comes to tech adoption." In fact, the study found that 41% of seniors 65 and older do not use the internet at all! Among the reasons stated was difficulty learning new technology. Only 18% of seniors say they would feel comfortable learning to use a new device on their own and 77% indicate "they would need someone to help walk them through the process."
