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

Did you know older Australians (aged 70+) are making good use of the internet for everyday purposes?

In particular:

  • 60% of older Australians are using online banking ‘A lot of the time’.
  • 30% of older Australians are posting to or reading social media ‘A lot of the time’.

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.
