Incorporating senior care services in Holland, MI
At Comfort Keepers®, we believe in implementing cutting-edge technology to improve senior care services, eliminate social isolation, and increase participation. Our caregivers are trained to use various technology to help seniors and their families feel more connected and purposeful as part of our senior care services.
Our secure online family gateway gives you peace of mind.
Seniors and their families must stay connected and informed, especially when family members cannot visit their loved ones as regularly as they would want. In fact, for many elders, maintaining close contact with family members is one of the most significant sources of delight. The free online family portal provided by Comfort Keepers gives families the peace of mind they need while their loved one is in our care. Caregivers can use our web portal to communicate information about their loved one's daily activities, care plans, and potential areas of concern. Within site, family members can quickly ask questions and make requests.
Preparing Seniors for the Switch from 3G to 5G
Although switching from a 3G to a 5G wireless network would provide more stable connections, better coverage, and better call quality, some seniors may need to change their telephones to this newer technology. We know at Comfort Keepers that being in touch with loved ones may elevate seniors' moods and improve their physical, emotional, and mental health. That's why we're revealing how to prepare for the 3G network shutdown so they can keep in touch with family and friends without interruption. Read The 3G Network Is Going Away: What That Means for Seniors & Caregivers in our Info Center, or download our How to Prepare for the 3G Shutdown guide.
Using technology to increase engagement and foster connection
Email, social media, and phone calls keep many of us connected to each other and the rest of the world in today's world. When being in the same room isn't possible, using these tools to feel near together can be as powerful as in-person encounters.
Finding ways to keep in touch with family and friends is crucial for seniors' mental and emotional well-being. And there's no denying that staying connected to the rest of the world is advantageous to elders. Isolation from others has negative consequences, such as impaired cognition and sadness. Comfort Keepers caregivers use cutting-edge technology as a senior care service to overcome loneliness and social isolation emotions. This can include things like:
- Phone and video calls regularly
- Sharing of family photos and records of events
- Games and activities that aid memory and cognition
- Facilitating internet activities such as music, dance, photography, and hobbies.
Families and friends can set their goals in a secure, attainable way and improves their quality of life as part of the tailored senior care services plan prepared for each client.
