Yahoo Lists Everplans Among Essential Tech Tools For Older Adults

Yahoo! Finance reports that the longstanding myth about older folks being leery of technology is just that: a myth.

According to a Pew Research Center study as reported by Yahoo Finance in conjunction with US News & World Report, people aged 65 and up are using the internet in higher numbers than than ever before --  a trend that’s expected to continue as all of our lives become increasingly digital.

To aid in the great digital shift, Yahoo lists the top 10 essential tech tools for older adults. Recommended gadgets include fitness trackers, medication monitors, smartphones/watches, and transportation apps.

The best part, at least for us, is that Everplans is named among those tools:

Online Estate Repository: “The online service Everplans is one option for creating a digital archive that includes wills, trust, passwords, advance directives, information about your home and more, with options to share information with family members.”
