How Our At-Home Care Services Help Seniors in Littleton, CO and Surrounding Areas Stay Connected
It is a known fact that instead of moving to a nursing home or an assisted living facility, most older adults want to age at home. However, seniors who end up living on their own often tend to get lonely and feel like they’ve become disconnected from the world. This is especially true for those individuals who are struggling with mobility issues and are no longer able to move around like they used to.
At Visiting Angels Littleton, we are not just focused on the physical needs of our clients, but their emotional and social ones as well. We understand that providing at-home care for older adults requires a holistic approach. That is why, as a part of our Social Care program, our caregivers can help your parent stay connected to their loved ones by using various platforms such as Facebook or Skype.
How Can Social Media and Digital Tools Benefit Seniors?
At Visiting Angels Littleton, we want to keep our clients socially engaged as much as possible and we have learned that by utilizing modern technology, our clients are able to stay in touch with people they love in the easiest way possible.
Studies have shown that surfing the internet can greatly reduce depression in older adults. Apart from talking to their loved ones, seniors can use their computer to shop online or research information. Research conducted at the University of Arizona has found that seniors who use Facebook have managed to improve their working memory.

Although all of our care providers are compassionate and kind individuals who can keep your loved one company and alleviate feelings of loneliness, we understand that sometimes they may wish to spend quality time with family or catch up with friends and neighbors.
Through the Social Care program, our caregivers can help your loved one learn how to use a cell phone so they can stay in touch with friends and family members at all times. Our caregivers can also show them how to text, send e-mail, Skype or use FaceTime. Your parent can interact with loved ones through Facebook, so we will gladly help them create their account and show them how to use it.
