Article published by our postdoctoral researcher Javiera Rosell (deputy director of Programa Adulto Mayor UC) together with Josefa Guerra and Felipe Bustamante. The study used the National Socioeconomic Characterization Survey (CASEN 2017) to analyze five types of Internet use related to information search, communication, and entertainment. Sociodemographic variables such as age, sex, educational level, marital status and number of people living in the household were included, among a subsample of elderly caregivers.
This information is useful for developing interventions that overcome the barriers of age and educational level, allowing the most vulnerable older caregivers to access the benefits of using technology.
