In-Home Care: Helping Seniors Embrace Technology Through Social Care
Visiting Angels In-Home Care Provides the Assurance You Need for Your Aging Senior
Visiting Angels offer local seniors a holistic approach towards home care. This approach includes care for the individual-- both inside and outside of the home. We use modern technology to assist with our social care program to help families stay connected with platforms like Facebook, Skype, and FaceTime. We look to keep seniors engaged and active with their families even when using in-home care services. Seniors that do not have consistent communication, or are not actively involved in their community, are more prone to loneliness. This loneliness is why our agency introduced our social care plan.
Digital Tools Help Seniors Connect to Family and Friends
Seniors can frequently have difficulty adapting and adjusting to a digital social life; a common issue is that seniors have problems learning and grasping new technology. There are further studies that have shown how the use of technology can benefit seniors emotionally and mentally:
- Another study shows that seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook have a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation.**
- A University of Arizona study finds that seniors who use Facebook showed a 25 percent improvement in mental "updating" skills - essentially improving their working memory.
- Surfing the internet can reduce depression in Seniors by 20 percent.*
Helping Seniors Stay Engaged Via Technology
The Visiting Angels' Social Care Program that is a service from our in-home care, teaches seniors to:
- Use a cell phone
- Login, shop online, or research information on a search engine
- Create a Facebook page or account to interact with family and friends
- Text, send an email, Skype, or use FaceTime
