How Companion Home Care Helps Seniors in East Bernard and Surrounding Communities Stay Connected

From day one, Visiting Angels East Bernard has understood that for a senior to lead a happy life, they need more than assistance with physical tasks and activities. That is why we have implemented a holistic approach to senior care, making sure all the needs of our clients are met, including physical, mental, emotional and social. Our social care program focuses on technological advancements to help families stay connected at all times via popular platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Skype, FaceTime and others.

The support and assistance from a caregiver can motivate seniors to use new technology to their best advantage, whether they wish to communicate with family and friends, remain entertained through movies, TV shows and games or stay informed through news and other channels.

Benefits of Digital Platforms for Older Adults

Our social care program is based on the latest scientific studies that show the benefits social media has on seniors and older adults. One of these studies has found that seniors who regularly surf the web reduce the risk of depression by 20 percent.*

Another study, performed at the University of Arizona, has discovered that seniors who use Facebook enjoy improved mental updating skills, boosting their working memory. Finally, researchers have also found that seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook enjoy the time they spend online, as measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation and pupil dilation.**

  • Use a cell phone to take pictures, send messages, make calls, and more
