I have decided to focus this latest issue of the David York Agency Newsletter on the elderly and social media. Given this past winter, we in New York can all testify to the advantages to the elderly of connecting with others from the convenience and safety of their own homes. Many might think that social media is the exclusive domain of the younger generation. However, many of our older adults have enthusiastically adopted it to keep up with the times as well as their old acquaintances and younger family members. While their younger counterparts use social media in a “selfie” sort of way, the elderly, who are very sensitive to privacy issues, use it to connect with like-minded individuals.

She holds advanced degrees in gerontological administration and has experience in the field as a Nursing Supervisor in a nursing home. Anita has been in the business of home care for over 40 years starting out in a NYC Medicaid agency.
