The use of touch screen technology is slowly growing in the healthcare industry. One area where it’s being used more and more often is with touch screens for eldercare facilities.

Though technology may not cure mental decline, the evidence suggests that it is crucial in preventing its onset. Elderly residents need technology to be able to stay engaged in their world and this is one way to do it.
Computers have a lot of benefits for elderly people from brain training apps to keep fit sessions and sing-alongs, but they often come with too many buttons that are hard to read or understand. Touchscreen tables negate this issue and have many more benefits too.
This article answers 4 common questions care homes have when considering a touch screen tablet.
1. What is the latest in touch screen technology for the elderly and how does it work?
Touch screen tables, also known as “seniors touch screens” are a great way to make technology more accessible for seniors. Screens are much easier to use than buttons on a keyboard and with just the tap of a finger, you can be interacting with everything from your favourite TV show or newspaper to games and other apps.
2. What are the benefits of using this type of technology to help with memory loss, anxiety, and depression?
Touch screens are now being used in eldercare facilities to help with memory loss, anxiety, and depression. This type of technology is a great way for seniors to connect with their loved ones while feeling more like themselves. The ability for users to customize the types of content they want on the screen also helps them feel less stressed and more connected. The benefits of touch screen tables are too many to list in the post alone, but fundamentally they can be adapted to suit any residents needs.
