Technology connects us. At Visiting Angels Rockford, our holistic approach to in-home care encourages seniors to socialize and connect with friends and family. Connection with others is an essential cornerstone of good mental health. By utilizing modern technology, our Social Care program helps families stay in touch by helping seniors use their devices to access social and entertainment platforms.

Our senior care providers can facilitate technology use. Sending texts and emails, using social media and video chat platforms such as Facebook and Zoom, and even playing digital games can keep seniors mentally active and engaged.

Crossing the Digital Divide

Adopting a digital social life may not come easy to older adults who have difficulties grasping new technology. Our patient senior care providers will sit beside your loved one and show them how to use their device, whether it be a cell phone, tablet or personal computer. They can assist with connecting to the internet, identifying icons and recording passwords. Basically, our caregivers will show your loved one which keys to push and where to click.
