Sharpe C.: Online Resource for Senior Citizens
Sharpe explains that communication technology improves service delivery to the senior citizens, and enables them effectively and efficiently access information. For instance, a lot of government services are currently provided through the internet. The senior citizens must, therefore, understand how to use the internet and access online resources properly. One important online resource for senior citizens is ElderWeb. This is a website which is very effective in research on older people, families, and professionals, seeking information concerning elderly care or long term care (Bandura, 2003). Tourism websites like Exploritas are helpful to the senior citizens because it arranges for learning and travel adventures of the senior citizens.
Social security administration is also conducted online. The senior citizen can, therefore, know their social security status through the internet, instead of visiting the actual offices. This ensures efficiency in service delivery because minimal costs are involved, and also ensure effectiveness because many people can be served at almost the same time. The government also illustrates the laws and regulations affecting the seniors through the internet. This ensures adequate publicity because many people use the internet for getting information.
