New Parks Associates research finds that during the COVID-19 pandemic, 29% of US seniors ages 65 and older have used video conferencing services, 27% have used telehealth/remote consultation services, 22% have used a grocery store delivery or pick-up service, and 55% have an online video service subscription.

"The shift toward tech service solutions is very pronounced among seniors ages 65 and older as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Kristen Hanich, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates.
