The Social Care at Home Program from Visiting Angels of Tucker Teaches Seniors About Modern Technology and How to Use It

social care program

What makes our social care at home program so invaluable and necessary for modern senior care? It all comes down to our approach to home care, one that is holistic to address every aspect of your loved ones needs. This holistic approach takes care of seniors both inside and outside of the home.

With our social care program, we help families and friends stay connected with their loved ones through modern technology. By using platforms such as Facebook, Skype, and FaceTime, we’re able to ensure that seniors remain active and engaged, even though they may not be mobile. Nowadays, quality care includes using modern technology, so that seniors can stay in touch with whomever they want!

Recent studies in America show some pretty astounding results:

  • Spending time on the internet can decrease depression in older adults by as much as 20%.
  • Seniors who use the Facebook platform have shown an improvement of 25% in working memory, according to a University of Arizona study. This is a clear indication of mental “updating” skills.
  • Social networking sites like Facebook provide a positive and emotional experience to older adults, as measured via brain stimulation, breathing rates, and pupil dilation.

How Our Social Care Program Works

Our social care at home program can teach our elderly clients several skills, including:

  • How to use a cell phone
  • How to send a text or an email message
  • How to use social networking and messaging platforms like Skype or FaceTime
  • How to create a Facebook account and build a page
  • How to interact with family and friends using Facebook
  • How to log into any accounts online, shop virtually, or research information on a search engine

Stay in touch with your loved one through the Visiting Angels of Tucker social care at home program!

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.
