Mobile Communications: Proven to Have Health Benefits for Seniors
An estimated 47% of the total populations of senior citizens in the US today are proven unaware of the technological advances in terms of e-communications.
“Seniors need to get on the technological bandwagon and become an integral part of their own health care and health care delivery,” says Sara J. Czaja, scientific director: Center on Aging University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.
Aging as nature’s way of weathering for humans is accompanied by psychological and physiological changes in the human chemistry. Age related impairment include word retrieval, vocal and auditory impairment, comprehension, literacy skill depreciation and conversational aptitude. The benefit of communication is crucial for diminishing the adverse effects of these known aging conditions.
Regular conversation increases comprehension of the elderly with any complex messages and it also increases their word retrieval process resulting to better articulation. Speech also enhances the respiratory system at any age. All in all, it slows down the natural course of aging impairment. Talking to friends and loved ones enhances their perception of self-worth and helps them cope-up with loneliness, stress, hopelessness and depressions. Seniors who are involved in social talks also shows higher sense and appreciation of happiness.
The critical scenario is that, older populations are left alone at homes, and retired seniors moved into their retirement settlement or apartments. Seniors who are living alone are deprived of the opportunity in converging into a regular community and introducing a cell phone for seniors at this situation will provide them with a new way of engaging in a casual conversation. Mobile communication in the form of cellular phone provides a new platform for bridging the gap between seniors and the social community.
The government introduced dedicated organization in order to address the issue. The National Institute of Aging provides the seniors with the technological awareness in terms of e-communication and the National Network of Libraries and Medicines providing health awareness through e-communications technology. Other voluntary civic organizations were developed to help the elderly regarding electronic devices and their advantages. More electronic devices in the market today are designed especially for the senior community with features that caters to their aging needs. A prominent mobile device, http://Just5.com was introduced in the market crafted to compensate visual and auditory impairment. Just 5 mobile was designed with highly visible keypad and audio supported key stroke with high fidelity built-in speaker. The phone can be easily operated by senior citizens because of its essential yet simple interface and user-friendly features.
