Abstract

Older people suffer from mental health challenges like younger age groups. In old age, many must also accommodate to losses and disability caused by disease or age-related frailty. Psychological interventions may ease these burdens by helping adaption and development of compensatory processes. Older people are willing to take part in psychological interventions, but may experience more obstacles entering psychological treatment programs because of limited access to transportation. Especially, the most vulnerable group of older adults have difficulties coming to weekly meetings with therapists. Web-based psychological intervention is therefore of special interest for this group. The question is whether older adults are willing to take part in online psychological treatment programs, if they are able to complete the treatment, or they drop out due to technical inabilities.
