Combining Technology With Our In-Home Care Services in Jacksonville, FL, and our surrounding area
Fighting isolation with technology integration
At Comfort Keepers®, we believe in using forward-thinking technology solutions to improve the transparency of care, reduce social isolation, and improve engagement. Our in-home care services team is trained to utilize a variety of technologies to foster connection and purpose for seniors and their loved ones.
Support for your family only takes
Transparency of care
In-home care is the most effective when families and caregivers work together as part of a senior’s integrated care team. Comfort Keepers caregivers utilize online portals to share care notes, photos, and updates with family members that are looking for updates. Loved ones can see how the custom care plan is being implemented, the physical and mental health of their loved ones, and what the caregiver is doing to bring hope, purpose, and joy to everyday activities.
Using technology to foster connection and increase engagement
In today’s world, email, social networks, and phone calls serve to keep many of us connected to each other and the world. Using these technologies to feel close together can be as effective as in-person visits – especially when being together in the same room isn’t possible.
For seniors, finding ways to maintain connections to family and friends is critical for mental and emotional wellbeing. And there isn’t any doubt that being connected to the world is beneficial for seniors. Social isolation has negative effects, including diminished cognition and depression. Comfort Keepers caregivers implement modern solutions while providing in-home care services to help reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation for seniors. This can include:
- Regularly scheduled phone and video calls
- Sharing of family photos and event recordings
- Games and activities that help cognition and memory
- Facilitating online activity, including access to music, dance, photography, and hobbies
As part of the individualized care plan created for each client, families, and friends can define their goals in a way that is secure, attainable, and provides increased quality of life.
