Tech Tips: 10 Engaging Apps for Seniors

If you Google “apps for seniors”, you’ll find many app lists that focus on help with medication management, low vision issues, or simplified versions of traditional apps. While health management and accessibility may be important to many seniors, remember to try out other apps for the sake of enjoyment.

At Brookdale, every Resident Programs Leader in our Independent, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Communities uses an iPad to create engaging programs with residents and we’ve heard some amazing stories of creative ways they use them. If you’re a senior who is new to the iPad, or you’re a seasoned iPad user introducing it to a senior for the first time, check out our list of 10 engaging apps for seniors, inspired by our associates’ great work with the iPads!
