Social Care at Home in Greater Fairfield, CT

Visiting Angels' Social Care at Home Can Help Reduce Social Isolation in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, and Surrounding Areas

What makes our social care at home program so unique and effective? It all comes down to our home care, which has an approach that is distinctly holistic. Your loved one will receive a personalized, client-centered program, whether it is in or out of their home. Thanks to today’s technologically advanced era, we use modern technology to help seniors stay connected with friends and family. With platforms like Facebook, Skype, and FaceTime, older adults remain active, engaged, and happier!

Let’s Look at Some Recent Studies

At Visiting Angels of Fairfield, our home care team is always looking through current research pertaining to seniors and modern technology in order to stay abreast of the latest news and findings.

Did you know that:

  • Seniors who surf the internet can reduce depression by 20 percent?
  • Older adults who use Facebook improved their mental “updating” skills by 25% according to a University of Arizona study? Essentially, by using this popular platform, they’re improving their working memory!
  • Seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook experience a positive and emotional experience? According to another recent study that measured breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation, this shows us that elderly individuals really gain a myriad of benefits when using these types of sites.

What Can Our Social Care Program Teach Seniors?

When family members call our office, they often ask us about our social care at home program and what it teaches seniors specifically. Typically, we can help our elderly clients learn several skills, namely how to:

  • Use a cell phone to talk or send a text message
  • Send an e-mail
  • Use Skype or FaceTime to chat with loved ones
  • Create a Facebook account and page to interact with family and friends online
  • Log into their online accounts
  • Shop over the internet
