Home Health Care Providers Help Seniors Stay Connected in Marmora, Cape May, NJ, and Nearby Cities

Visiting Angels’ Home Health Care Providers Assist Seniors with Using New Technology and Platforms to Stay Connected in Marmora, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties - Including Portions of Salem and Gloucester Counties

At Visiting Angels of Cape May, we understand how important it is to provide your loved one with the best home care so they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible. Sometimes, seniors have a more difficult time staying in touch with friends and relatives, either because they cannot safely access transportation or because they have a hard time figuring out how to use newer technology. Our home health care providers help seniors stay connected to their friends and family through online platforms such as Facebook, FaceTime, and Skype through our Social Care program.

Adjusting to Virtual Social Life

Seniors may have a harder time adjusting to a partially virtual social life than younger adults. Your loved one may experience difficulty using new technology or social media platforms. However, staying connected over social media and through modern technology can benefit seniors both emotionally and mentally. Studies have shown that surfing the web can reduce depression in the elderly by 20 percent. A study done by University of Arizona shows that seniors who use Facebook improved their working memory by 25 percent. Another study indicated that seniors who visited social networking websites such as Facebook experienced positive emotions.
