Utilizing Technology with Our Home Care Solutions in Greater Plymouth, MI
Integrating technology with in-home care solutions for seniors Plymouth, Canton, Westland, and nearby cities
At Comfort Keepers, we believe in utilizing cutting-edge technology to increase the transparency of home care solutions, reduce social isolation, and increase engagement. Our caregivers are trained to use various technologies to help seniors and their loved ones connect and have a sense of purpose.
Our online family portal provides peace of mind
Maintaining contact and keeping each other informed is critical for seniors and their families, even more so when family members cannot visit as frequently as they wish. Keeping in touch with family members is, in fact, one of the most significant sources of joy for many seniors. The free online family portal provided by Comfort Keepers gives families the peace of mind they need while their loved one is receiving home care services. Caregivers can use our online portal to share updates on your loved one's daily activities, care plans, and potential areas of concern. Family members can also use the portal to ask questions about their loved one's personal care and make requests.
Email, social media, and phone calls are the primary methods of staying in touch in our modern world. Using these technologies to create a sense of closeness can be just as effective as in-person visits – especially when sharing a room is not possible.
Maintaining Connections with Home Care Solutions
When it comes to senior mental and emotional well-being, finding ways to maintain connections with family and friends is essential. In addition, it is undeniable that a solid connection to the outside world is beneficial for the elderly. Social isolation has negative consequences, such as impaired cognition and depression. Comfort Keepers caregivers use cutting-edge technology to help seniors overcome feelings of loneliness and social isolation. This can include things like:
- 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
Families and friends can define their goals in a secure, attainable way and improve quality of life as part of the individualized care plan created for each client. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our home care solutions.
