Social Care Program: Helping Seniors in Havertown, PA and Surrounding Areas Stay Connected with Private Home Care Services

Our private home care services include helping seniors in Havertown, Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood and surrounding areas in Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties in PA learn how to use digital tools to communicate with friends and family through our Social Care program

Seniors who live independently often have issues with loneliness. Living on their own can make social interaction difficult, especially when experiencing age-related issues that affect their mobility and cognition. It may gradually become more difficult for your loved one to travel to be with family, go out with friends or remember to call those they care about.

At Visiting Angels Havertown, our Social Care program was created to combat senior loneliness while making it easier to stay in touch with friends and family. As a trusted private home care provider for families in Montgomery County, Delaware County, Philadelphia County and the Main Line for over 22 years, we know it's important to care for more than our clients' physical care needs. It's also important to provide companionship and make it more convenient for clients to socialize. By teaching your loved one how to use digital tools and platforms, they'll be able to spend time with the people they love, no matter where they are.

The Benefits of Social Media for Seniors

At Visiting Angels Havertown, we always take a holistic approach when it comes to delivering private home care services to our clients. It is our goal to stimulate seniors in our care physically, mentally and socially. By helping them utilize modern technology, we keep them connected to their family and friends through platforms like Facebook, Skype, FaceTime, etc.

According to recent studies, using the internet can reduce depression in older adults by 20 percent. In addition, researchers at the University of Arizona have found that using Facebook can lead to an improvement in working memory. One more study has shown that seniors who use social platforms such as Facebook have a positive emotional experience. These are some of the reasons why through our Social Care program we strive to keep our clients active and engaged.

How the Social Care Program Helps Seniors in Havertown and Surrounding Areas

Our caregivers can take time to teach your loved one how to use a cell phone, so they can call you or their friends whenever they want to. We can also show them how to text, send e-mail, Skype or use FaceTime. With these newfound skills, seniors can easily stay in touch with their loved ones, talk to their grand-kids and not miss out on all the important moments.

If your parent wants to create a Facebook account so they can easily interact with old friends or find new ones, our caregivers can show them how. A lot of seniors these days use the web to shop online and research information, which is why our care professionals will happily show your parent how to use a search engine.
