The number of Americans who will suffer functional disability due to arthritis, stroke, diabetes, coronary artery disease, cancer, or cognitive impairment is expected to increase at least 300 percent by 2049.1 Although people tend to develop chronic conditions as they age, growing old does not have to mean becoming disabled.

  • Ownership rates across all age groups increased between 1985 and 2003. Again, this is a well- documented and understood change that has been driven by a number of economic factors, including, but not limited to, falling interest rates, rising standards of living, public policies helping low- and middle-income families afford home ownership. Among the elderly population, the ownership rate for population 85 and over exhibited the highest increase – i.e., 16 percentage points. Data show that the ownership rate peaks at the age 62 to 74.

  • We have mainly regarded elderly people’s use of information technology in their daily lives as ICT training of elderly people. We have also discussed the possibilities and limitations that technology raises for information, activity and for better contact with others. The use of ICT in nursing and care of elderly people mainly implies in this connection the use of smart-home technology in houses for old people and people with dementia. This technology involves the use of integrated ICT components.

  • Overall, adults age 65 and over do not appear to be using the Internet. This population has resisted going online, but all age groups have begun to gain ground as users. (Laurich 2002, 176). Laurich maintains that the elderly believe the Internet does not contain information highly relevant to their needs.

  • Poverty is higher in remote rural areas and in inner cities, but the rural elderly are much more likely to be poor than those living in urban areas. Thirteen percent of rural elders 60 years and older were poor in 2000, compared with nine percent of elders living in a metro area [20]. Thus we expect to find the most evidence of impeded access for the poor elderly who reside in rural areas. We interact the proportion of elderly in poverty with the proportion in rural areas to include in the model.

  • Gerontology, the study of ageing and the elderly, deals not only with the physical process of ageing, but also with the related social and cultural factors. There are two contradictory processes we are concerned with. Elderly people in modern societies are of lower social status and with less power than in sub-modern societies, but are less prone to accept ageing as an unavoidable process of decay of the human body. Gerontology, the study of ageing and the elderly, deals not only with the physical process of ageing, but also with the related social and cultural factors.
