Middle aged couple researching online

Queensland trials using tablet mobile devices are helping seniors (65-85 years old) use technology to maintain and build social connections.

50 households in the Sunshine Coast area are participating in a project with important implications for aged care, involving the ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (*CEPAR) and partners in Queensland. The project includes a similar trial in India with around 30 participants.
