Digital Tools Help Seniors Connect to Family and Friends in Medina, Strongsville, and the Surrounding Areas
Adopting a digital social life may be difficult for older adults struggling to grasp new technology. However, recent studies have shown the following emotional and mental benefits digital tools can have on the elderly:
- Surfing the internet can reduce depression in Seniors by 20 percent.*
- A University of Arizona study finds seniors who use Facebook showed a 25 percent improvement in mental “updating” skills - essentially improving their working memory.
- Another study shows seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook have a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation.**

Social Care in the Local Community
Our caregivers can provide transportation to appointments, the library, senior centers, concerts, crafts, and more. They can drive, help your loved one in and out of the car, and monitor them during activities. Getting out of the house can be a nice change of pace for a senior who is otherwise homebound.
