    Abstract

    Social media and internet technologies are regularly used by young and adult population. Older adults are using social media rarely, even though these technologies have the potential to ease and enrich their lives. This article discusses different possibilities for the use of technologies to enrich the lives of older adults by activating them socially and physically. Technology can also support the maintenance of close relationships with relatives and care givers and ease their workload
