Learn How Our In-Home Caregivers Help Seniors in San Ramon, CA and Surrounding Areas Stay Connected

At Visiting Angels, our senior care services include our Social Care Program, which is geared toward helping seniors in San Ramon, Danville, Lafayette and surrounding areas in California stay connected with friends and family through using digital tools and platforms with the assistance of an in-home caregiver

At Visiting Angels San Ramon, we look at senior care through a holistic lens. We want our services to cater to the whole person: physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. Additionally, we want our clients to receive care both inside and outside the home. Catering to those specific realms gives seniors the opportunity to live fulfilling lives. We believe that a senior’s social well-being is very important, and through our Social Care Program, our in-home caregivers help seniors in San Ramon, Danville, Pleasanton, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Concord and surrounding areas in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties in California develop their social skills by using modern technology.

Seniors can develop socially by utilizing modern technology in order to connect with their loved ones (family, friends, etc.) and the world around them. Some of the modern technology that we inform our seniors of includes FaceTime, Skype and Facebook.

Recent studies have shown that surfing the internet can decrease depression by 20 percent*. Additionally, a University of Arizona study found that seniors who used Facebook showed a 25 percent increase in boosting their memory skills. Utilizing these technological resources through our home care solutions can help open the door to communities that a senior may not have known had existed beforehand. Another study showed that seniors who frequently use social networking websites, like Facebook, have a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, pupil dilation, and brain stimulation**.

Through our Social Care Program, our dedicated in-home caregivers teach seniors in San Ramon and surrounding areas about a variety of technologies that they can utilize to their advantages. These technologies include:

  1. Using a cellphone (texting, using Facetime, etc.)
  2. Sending emails or Skyping on the computer
  3. Creating a Facebook account and interacting on the website
  4. Logging into the computer
  5. Researching information through a search engine
  6. Shopping online

Our Social Care Program has helped thousands of seniors learn more about modern technology so they can interact with their loved ones in a brand new way.
