Connection with others is an essential cornerstone of good mental health. Senior Homecare by Angels Hamilton uses a holistic approach that encourages seniors to socialize and connect with friends and family. The coronavirus pandemic has limited our traditional gatherings, so connecting in other ways is vital.
By utilizing modern technology, our social care program helps families stay in touch. Our caregivers can help with sending texts and emails, using Facebook and Zoom, and playing computer games. Our senior support services keep seniors mentally active and engaged.
Crossing the Digital Divide Together
Adopting a digital social life may not come easy to older adults who have difficulties grasping new technology. Our patient caregivers will sit beside your loved one and show them how to use their devices, whether it be a cell phone, tablet, or personal computer. They can assist with connecting to the internet, identifying icons, and recording passwords. Our caregivers will show your loved one which keys to push and where to click.
Technology Provides Numerous Benefits for Seniors
Technology use can provide cognitive and emotional benefits, according to recent studies:
- A University of Arizona study reveals that seniors using Facebook show a 25 percent increase in “mental updating” skills, essentially improving their working memory.
- Seniors who visit social networking sites like Facebook have a positive emotional experience when measuring breathing rates, brain stimulation, and pupil dilation.
- Surfing the internet can reduce depression in seniors.
