Elderly Home Care: Social Care Program for Seniors in Pikesville, MD and the Surrounding Area
At Visiting Angels of Pikesville, we prioritize each need that our clients have whether it is a physical need or a social need. Giving equal attention to each type of need helps our clients live happier, more fulfilling lives than ever before. Through our social care program, we help our clients connect with their family, friends, and their surrounding community by using modern technology. Some of the technology that we teach our clients about includes Facebook, Skype, smartphones, and more.
Many Pikesville area seniors live far away from the people that they are closest to. Modern technology gives them a way to easily connect to the people that they love, no matter the distance. For example, with our elderly home care, your Mom may be able to easily video chat with your children after school. This strengthens your loved one’s social circle.
Benefits for Socially Active Seniors
Researchers have found that there are many health benefits to being more socially active. They include:
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduced risk for depression
- Potentially reduced risk for Alzheimer’s disease
- Potentially reduced risk for cardiovascular problems, osteoporosis, some cancers, and arthritis
Being socially active has also been shown to help seniors with their cognitive skills. For example, a University of Arizona study found that seniors who use Facebook showed a 25% improvement in their mental updating skills, improving their working memory.
During our elderly home care, we teach Pikesville area seniors how to use modern technology to benefit and uplift their own lives. Some of what we teach during our social care program includes using a cellphone, sending an email, creating a Facebook account, and shopping online. Our Visiting Angels strive to help seniors develop their social skills and live happier lives.
