Elder Care in Anderson, SC, and the Surrounding Area
Comfort Keepers caregivers can help your loved one learn how to use technology to stay socially connected and mentally active
At Comfort Keepers, we have a mission of helping seniors make the most out of their golden years. And we believe that one of the ways we can help our clients increase their quality of life is through the use of technology.
The main benefits of using technology in elder care include:
- Increasing care transparency
- Lowering social isolation and loneliness
- Boosting social interaction
Transparency of care
We believe that elder care yields the best results when families and caregivers work together. Comfort Keepers care providers use online portals to provide families with regular care updates: to share any care notes and observations, send pictures, answer questions, and much more. This enables families to see how well their loved ones are doing and how well the established care plan is being implemented.
Reducing isolation & nurturing relationships
Many seniors feel lonely, especially now during the pandemic. However, using technology can reduce isolation and help seniors feel more connected with the world around them. Your loved one can use technology to stay in touch with family and friends, which can have a very positive impact on their mental health and overall well-being.
Comfort Keepers elder care providers can help your loved one stay socially and mentally engaged through technology by teaching them how to:
- Schedule video calls through popular platforms and apps like Skype or FaceTime
- Share and view photos and videos
- Use social media networks to connect with loved ones
- Find games and activities online that boost cognition and memory
- And much more
Comfort Keepers’ social care can drastically improve your loved one’s life quality, providing plenty of opportunities for social stimulation and also increasing your loved one’s independence along the way.
GrandPad® and assistive technology devices for seniors
At Comfort Keepers, we can provide your loved one with special assistive technology that is designed specifically for seniors. Our GrandPad is a very user-friendly and intuitive tablet that can help older adults get accustomed to technology and reap all of its benefits without any difficulties.
