Social networking is good for you

Social networking is good for you‚ says Age Concern

A recent report on the 25th February 2009 by Age Concern claim that  getting online has positive benefits for older people.

“Our research shows that over two thirds of ‘silver surfers’ say using the Internet has improved their lives. Whether it’s using Facebook to stay in contact with friends‚ Skype for international calls to family abroad or using blogs to just have their say‚ social networking empowers previously isolated older people to stay connected and engaged” says Leonie Vlachos‚ Manager of Digital Inclusion. 


Brian Bullock, Managing Director of BCP stated ” “With the growth of the internet and social networking, it is important to ‘build for the future’.  The provision of these services  can only increase the attractiveness of your nursing or residential care home to the potential client”.

“A prime example of the ‘future proof building’  concept,  is Immingham, a project we recently completed.  Each of the 40 en-suite bedrooms,  were individually equipped with internet broadband,  a phone line and TV point”.
