Home Care Solutions for Seniors in San Ramon, CA and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels, our home care solutions include our Social Care Program, which is geared toward helping seniors in San Ramon, CA and surrounding areas stay connected with friends and family through using digital tools and platforms

At Visiting Angels, we look at care through a holistic lens. We want our home care solutions 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, we help seniors in San Ramon and surrounding areas 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, we teach our seniors 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. If you’re interested in learning more about our home care solutions, contact our San Ramon, CA office today.

Because of this program, I was able to experience two of the greatest joys in life – becoming a grandmother and seeing my son become a new father. Skyping and Facebooking with my son and his family are now a normal part of my life. It helps me feel like I’m still an important part of their lives even though I’m miles and miles away.
