The Social Care Program from Visiting Angels: How Our In-Home Caregivers Help Seniors in San Diego, CA and Surrounding Areas Stay Connected
Through the Social Care program, our in-home caregivers encourage seniors in San Diego, Coronado and surrounding areas in CA learn how to use digital tools in order to stay in touch with friends and family
At Visiting Angels San Diego, our caregivers are dedicated to improving the quality of life of senior clients throughout San Diego and Coronado with any means possible. This means taking a holistic stance to in-home senior care and addressing a range of physical, emotional and social needs.
As many seniors are not familiar with the use of modern means of communication, we realized there is a growing need for a specialized Social Care program that will enable older adults to become technologically literate. With the help of dedicated in-home caregivers from Visiting Angels San Diego, your loved one can stay socially active and more independent.
How Can the Social Care Program Help My Loved One?
A dedicated member of our in-home caregiver team can show your loved one how to use a tablet, laptop or smartphone and send text messages and emails. Furthermore, your Mom or Dad can also learn how to set up and manage a Facebook account, surf the internet and use chatting platforms and apps such as Skype and FaceTime.
The best part - the benefits of our Social Care Program are pretty much unlimited. Your loved one can stay close with family and friends out of town, meet like-minded people, chat with their peers, play games and find entertainment, shop online and so much more.
The most important thing is that your loved can socialize and stay connected with people they care about whenever they like and never feel lonely and isolated again.
