The Importance of Social Care and Other Forms of Non-Medical Home Care in Monroe, MI

Over the years, we realized that there is a need for the development of a social care program that will help bring seniors into the 21st century when it comes to the ways they communicate. Through the Social Care program, we help older adults communicate with their loved ones the way everyone else does these days, through social media platforms and apps lie Facebook, Skype and FaceTime.

Many studies have shown that social media use can significantly help improve a senior's quality of life.

  • Researchers at the University of Arizona have shown that those older adults who user Facebook on a regular basis can improve their mental “updating” skills by as much as 25 percent.
  • Furthermore, seniors actually like using social media. A study that observed seniors using Facebook showed they had a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation and pupil dilation.**

We can also help them use the internet for entertainment. This can include things like helping them learn how search engines operate or teach them how to shop online.
