Last chance – give now. Before 2014 ends, help struggling seniors. Donate


We’re living in a digital world. According to a 2013 Google/Ipsos poll, 78 percent of baby boomers are online, and 52 percent of seniors are online and its growing every day. These age groups spend more time each week on the internet (about 19 hours) than they devote to television and radio, and magazines are newspapers. Yet, millions of people over the age of 50 are not online.
On the next AARP Live, we’re talking technology. We’ll explore the barriers that are keeping people from logging on and how AARP is working to help those who have fallen behind in the digital age catch-up and get comfortable with technology.  We will also discuss how technology can help ward off isolation among older adults – particularly in rural areas. Charlotte Whittaker, an AARP Volunteer Kentucky joins us to share how digital technology has become an integral part of her daily life.
Join the conversation: Tell us how you use technology to stay in touch with family and friends. Call in during the show, Thursday, November 20th at 10 PM CT/9 PM CT/8PM MT/7 PM Pacific. Watch right here on the web! We’ll take caller questions and comments live at 1-877-731-6733. Also, two lucky callers will have a chance to win an AARP RealPad tablet we’re giving away during the show. (Rules Apply).
