How Visiting Angels Denver Helps Seniors Stay Connected Through the Social Care Program
At Visiting Angels Denver, our Social Care program helps families maintain strong relationships by using social media platforms such as Facebook or Skype. Knowing how to use these platforms can enable older adults to talk to their loved ones on a regular basis, view their photos and videos, and always know what they are doing.
Recent studies have shown that just surfing the Internet regularly can reduce depression in seniors by 20 percent.* Moreover, according to a study conducted at the University of Arizona, seniors who use Facebook report a whopping 25 percent improvement in mental updating skills, which basically means using Facebook can improve working memory in older adults. Finally, another study has shown that seniors who are active on Facebook have a positive emotional experience as measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation and pupil dilation.**
With our professional home care options, your senior loved one can reap all the benefits of using social media, including staying in touch with family and friends, staying entertained and informed and meeting their peers.
Our Social Care program can teach your loved one how to:
- Use a cell phone (how to make a call, send and receive text messages, video calls, pictures, and videos, use FaceTime and WhatsApp, and more)
- Send an email, receive voice and video calls via Skype, and more
- Create a Facebook account, connect with family and friends, and use the platform
