Mind and Body: Senior Activity and Depression
During one of the more substantial studies performed on European elders by University of Gothenburg researchers in Sweden, two key factors became apparent. Firstly, those who led more active lives were less prone to suffering depression. Secondly, seniors were more likely to take the initiative in improving their health when feeling empowered and offered a sense of self-motivation.
The InTouchLink system offers such self-motivation and competence through an innovative, simple-to-use hotel-style communication ideal for seniors communities. It also provides the same fun, safe online experience for individuals from the comfort of their own homes. Whether just to check their email, webcam with loved ones or browsing the website, InTouchLink provides simple email and computers for the elderly.
