Older people were disproportionately impacted by social distancing measures arising from the coronavirus pandemic, increasing their risk of experiencing social isolation and loneliness. Technology is frequently proposed to enhance social engagement; however, few reviews have addressed its efficacy among older people from a theoretical standpoint.
We addressed three research questions: 1) What is the effectiveness of technology-based interventions in addressing social isolation and loneliness among older people? 2) What are the key barriers and enablers of such interventions? 3) What key theoretical frameworks have informed these interventions?
