Virtual is the new normal

Seniors are embracing ‘Just Live’ as a way to control how they want to live their lives now and plan for the future. Recently the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, work, socialise and obtain information. Accessing information and services via online platforms such as Zoom, facetime, facebook messenger, WhatsApp and Skype to name a few is fast becoming the new normal. And yes – even for seniors! A recent poll shows that 84% of senior respondents said they had used an online platform recently to connect with friends, family or to talk to service providers or other professionals.
