Beyond Messaging

Beyond the obvious benefits of fast, reliable communication, keeping in regular contact with your loved ones can improve your mood, increase your cognitive reserve, and keep you and your loved ones safe from scams and exploitation.

Social Engagement Can Improve Your Mood and Purpose.

We aren’t talking about posting the silly things that might work on the popular social media apps. We’re talking about real engagement with people you care about. Photos, messages, and updates about you and the family can go a long way to feeling connected when you’re physically distant.

Social Contact Increases Cognitive Reserve.

A greater frequency of social contact at age 60 years is associated with a lower risk of developing dementia and more frequent midlife social contact is associated with higher subsequent cognitive performance. 

Loneliness Affects Fraud Susceptibility.

When you remove yourself from your Trusted Circle, you begin to reach for connection elsewhere. Potential scammers are able to lean into your life more easily, convincing you that they are here to help, when really they are reaching in to exploit you financially.
