Social Care Program: How Companion Home Care Services from Visiting Angels Eldersburg Helps Seniors and Families Stay Connected

Visiting Angels provides companion home care services that promote mental stimulation and wellness for seniors in Western Baltimore, Eldersburg, Westminster, Columbia, Ellicott City, Randallstown and the surrounding areas of Maryland

Depression and mental problems are high among the elderly. This means it is not enough to provide your loved ones with their physical needs but also with their social needs. This is a holistic approach to providing companion home care services for your loved ones. Thanks to technology, it is now easy for everyone, including seniors in Carroll, Howard and Baltimore Counties in Maryland, to reach out to the rest of the world.

Studies show that surfing the internet is beneficial for the elderly as it can reduce symptoms of depression by 20 percent. Moreover, another benefit of using the internet particularly social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter is that it improves the working memory of individuals. Browsing the internet also has calming effects as it can help improve breathing rates, pupil dilation and brain stimulation. With so many benefits to using social media for seniors, it's no wonder that families throughout the Eldersburg area count on our companion home care services to help their loved ones stay connected.

Because of this program, I was able to experience two of the greatest joys in life – becoming a grandmother and seeing my son become a new father. Skyping and Facebooking with my son and his family are now a normal part of my life. It helps me feel like I’m still an important part of their lives even though I’m miles and miles away.

How Our Social Care Program Can Help

Here at Visiting Angels Eldersburg, our caregivers are trained to teach senior clients how to use technology to their advantage. Your senior loved one may not be comfortable utilizing technology on their own – which is where Visiting Angels Eldersburg can help.

Our social care program can allow your senior to make phone calls, look at photos, and even play games on their tablets or computers. Our companionship caregivers can set your loved one up with a favorite TV show or movie, perhaps cheering on the Patriots or Orioles on game days. Sharing experiences, keeping in touch with loved ones and keeping up with favorite activities all promote overall wellness for independent seniors.
