Boosting Social Wellness Through Personal Home Care Services in Westminster, CO and Surrounding Areas

Through our Social Care program, we aim to help seniors in Westminster, Northglenn, Broomfield, CO and surrounding areas stay connected with loved ones by providing personal home care services

At Visiting Angels Westminster, we are dedicated to helping local seniors make the most of their golden years by staying engaged and active as much as possible. Many age-related issues can make it difficult for seniors to go out and socialize, causing them to stay home and isolate themselves. Not staying socially engaged can lower your loved one's quality of life, as social interaction is important for older adults.

That is why we developed the Social Care program - our personal home care services specially designed to help seniors boost their social wellness through the use of digital technologies. 

How Social Media Benefits Seniors

Here are some interesting facts that illustrate the benefits of the internet and social media to senior well-being:

  • According to the Phoenix Center based in Washington D.C., surfing the internet helps reduce depression is seniors by 20 percent.
  • A recent study conducted at the University of Arizona showed an increase in mental “updating” skills by 25 percent in older adults who regularly used Facebook. This means being active on Facebook literally helped boost their working memory.
  • The Journal of Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking showcased a study that found how seniors who use social media platforms such as Facebook have a positive emotional experience when measured by breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation.

With this said, it is quite obvious how social media and the internet can improve your loved one’s quality of life. Now, let us see what Visiting Angels can do help.
