At Visiting Angels, We Utilize Non Medical Home Care When Helping Our Clients in and Around Joplin Stay Connected To Their Family and Friends

At Visiting Angels of Joplin, we believe that caring for your senior loved one requires a holistic approach. Whether it’s inside or outside of the home, we ensure specialized, one-on-one care that’s personalized to your loved one’s needs. Thanks to our social care program and non medical home care, Visiting Angels of Joplin caregivers utilize modern technology to help our clients stay connected to their families. Using popular platforms like FaceTime, Skype, and Facebook, seniors can remain active and engaged with an online presence.

Here are a few startling results of recent non medical home care studies:

  • Seniors can reduce depression by surfing the internet by as much as 20%.
  • Elderly individuals who use Facebook can improve their mental skills by as much as 25%, according to a University of Arizona study. By gaining mental “updating” skills, seniors essentially improve their working memory while using this popular networking platform.
  • Social networking sites have a positive emotional experience, according to another study that measured reactions in seniors while using platforms like Facebook, which was measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation.

Our non medical home care can teach seniors modern technology skills, such as:

  • How to use a cell phone.
  • How to send a text message or an email.
  • How to use messaging platforms like Skype or FaceTime that allows for video messaging.
  • How to create a Facebook account and user page, as well as how to use Facebook to interact with family and friends online.

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.
