Care Connect’s Connectivity Report – older Australians are more tech savvy than we think.

Did you know older Australians (aged 70+) are using technology to stay connected?

In particular:

  • 87% use email
  • 68% use mobile phones with 66% using text messaging
  • 35% use social media
  • 28% use online calls

Care Connect’s ‘Connectivity Report’ explores the attitudes and behaviours of older Australians towards technology and their use of it to stay connected with family, friends and community. Findings from the report highlight how a large proportion of older Australians are using technology to maintain their independence and remain at home.
