Senior List co-founder Amie Clark was interviewed recently by the fine folks at NewRetirement.com. If you’re unfamiliar with them, NewRetirement is a group “dedicated to helping people concerned about retirement find the information they need to create a secure retirement plan”. They wanted to discuss technology, and how it helps or hinders aging adults today. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:
What are the most common concerns you’ve heard from seniors regarding technology?
Technology is moving at lightning speed, and I hear from boomers and seniors who say they don’t know where to start. In addition, our visitors report that it can be difficult to weed through the clutter and decide what options they want (and really need) when they are researching products. – Amie Clark, The Senior List
Do you think keeping up with the trends of something as fast paced as the tech industry can keep the mind young, healthy, and strong?
Absolutely. I think the key to keeping the mind healthy is to keep learning and questioning. Engaging with other people is also such an important piece of keeping the brain operating on all cylinders. – Amie Clark, The Senior List
