Using Family Room to Enhance Senior Home Care

Staying connected and keeping each other informed is crucial to seniors and their families, especially when family members can’t be with their loved ones as frequently as they would like. Keeping in close contact with family members is one of the most significant sources of joy for many seniors. Comfort Keepers’ free, online family portal provides families with the peace of mind they need while their loved one is in our care. Our online portal enables caregivers to share updates regarding their loved one’s daily activities, care plans, and potential areas of concern. Family members can also easily ask questions and add requests within the portal.

Using technology to foster connection and increase engagement

Maintaining connections to family and friends is critical for seniors' mental and emotional well-being. And there isn’t any doubt that being connected to the world benefits seniors. Social isolation has negative effects, including diminished cognition and depression. Comfort Keepers, caregivers implement modern elder care services to help reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation for seniors. This includes:

  • Regularly scheduled phone and video calls
  • Sharing of family photos and event recordings
  • Shopping online for groceries
  • 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 secure, attainable way and provides increased quality of life.

How Technology Helps Seniors

Seniors often use tablets and smartphones to stay connected with friends they would have otherwise missed out on, watch movies, check social media, and even play games online with others nearby without any physical effort. Technology has advanced so much that senior citizens can stay connected with people from all over the world. Online interaction and connection are easy ways for seniors to reach out to those they have lost touch with over time and keep the relationship strong. 

Preventive technology such as text message alerts and apps that remind seniors to take medications, exercise, or even get out of bed in the morning is being promoted to seniors as a part of our elder care services.
