Online Buzz: Touchscreen Tech Trends Are Helping Grandparents Connect!

Seniors with a tablet computer.

Many seniors have long balked at using personal computers to connect with family and friends. Resistance to a computer's expense, bulkiness and the learning curve have left many grandparents rarely hearing from or seeing their grandkids. Now, sleek and easy-to-use touchscreen devices are streamlining how older adults use technology to video chat and share photos, emails and more.

Companies continue to push the envelope in user friendliness for the elderly, and a number of popular touch-display products are on the market, from handy smartphones to full-wall screens. For elders with arthritic fingers and trouble tracking difficult tasks, the new generation of touchscreen devices are a wonderful stay-in-touch convenience.
