Nearly 22 million seniors over the age of 65 still lack wireless broadband access at home. That’s a public health crisis – especially in the midst of a pandemic that has left many older Americans already isolated.
Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) the nonprofit that runs Senior Planet, with support from The Humana Foundation, is leading a national campaign for increased internet access among older adults. Aging Connected has an ambitious goal of connecting one million more adults to the Internet by 2022 so that everyone can thrive online.
By helping older adults find low-cost, in-home broadband options in their area and connect with Senior Planet courses, we aim to help seniors maximize the benefit of technology use for health, social engagement, and other essential outcomes.
