Senior citizens are often left out of the loop when it comes to technology. Anyone 60 and older may not own a smartphone or even know how to make use of the advanced features. While there’s a steady stream of gadgets launched every other day, one category that usually doesn’t get specifically targeted is the Elderly. Although, in the last couple of months, there have been few products best suited to be used and operated by the senior citizens. These devices are well equipped to offer extreme convenience, while helping the elderly to stay connected and safe.
