At Home Care Agency for Social Isolation in Gilford, NH and the Surrounding Area

Visiting Angels Is an At Home Care Agency That Believes in a Modern, Holistic Approach to Providing Care in Gilford, Laconia, Wolfeboro, Moultonborough, and Surrounding Areas

Staying connected with family and friends is an important part of life, especially for a senior. In today’s modern age, it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing modern technologies. With our social care program, we help seniors maneuver modern technology during at home care so they can have the opportunity to communicate with the ones that they love. We offer assistance with programs such as FaceTime, Skype, and Facebook.

With our holistic mindset, we’re looking to help our seniors both inside and outside of the home. This includes staying social with friends, family, and their community. Multiple studies have shown that staying social affects seniors in a positive manner.

These studies include:

  • A study conducted by the University of Arizona found that 25% of their sample group of seniors improved their mental "updating" skills. This includes things such as memory and working skills.
  • Recent studies by the Washington, D.C based Phoenix Center have shown that surfing the internet can increase depression in seniors by as much as 20%.
  • The Journal of Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking found out that seniors who used social networking platforms such as FaceTime or Facebook reacted positively, measured by pupil dilation, brain stimulation, and breathing rates.

Each of these studies supports the idea that seniors benefit greatly from utilizing technology during their at home care. During our social care program, we will teach our seniors about social media, the internet, cell phones, and more.

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.
