Social Care Is the Homecare Solution to Social Isolation in Greater York and Hanover, PA

Visiting Angels Has the Homecare Solutions to Reduce Social Isolation in York, Hanover, Dallastown, and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels of York, we understand better than anyone that as you grow older, the harder it is to remain connected to the people that matter most. With limited mobility and vision, the inability to drive, and sometimes even being bed-bound, it is hard for seniors to go out and about to meet friends, family, and community members. Which is why our caregivers are dedicated to providing essential homecare solutions and keeping your aging loved one social, even if it is from the comfort of their own home.

The Importance of Social Connection

Feeling connected to family, friends, neighbors, and the community is important to feeling healthy, social, and happy. Seniors often run the risk of social isolation, especially when they live alone. Isolation can lead to loneliness, anxiety, depression, worsened heart and circulatory health, higher risk of chronic illness, and other negative health impacts. Our homecare solutions incorporate opportunities to pursue activities your loved one enjoys, attend community events, and socialize using social platforms.

How Technology Can Help

These days, a vital part of social interaction is the ability to use technology. A caregiver can work with your loved one to access a wide range of telecommunication sources. Caregivers can assist with:

  • Texting, emailing, and video chat to reach out to loved ones on a regular basis
  • Creating a Facebook profile to connect with friends, community members, and family
  • Using their laptop to create accounts and shop online for groceries and other essential items
  • Setting up FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom to do group video calls to friends and family
