Senior Care Assistance and Technology in Greater Summerville, SC

Integrating technology with senior care assistance in Summerville, Ladson, Goose Creek, and nearby cities

At Comfort Keepers, we believe in utilizing forward-thinking technology solutions to increase care transparency, decrease social isolation, and increase engagement. Our caregivers are trained to use a range of technology to help elders and their loved ones feel connected and purposeful. For further information on how we integrate technology into our senior care assistance services, call our office at (843) 594-0297 or continue reading below. 

Integrating Senior Home Care with Technology

The most effective senior care assistance programs are those in which family members and home care professionals work together as an integrated care team. Comfort Keepers caregivers utilize internet portals to send updates to family members as well as care notes, modifications to care services, and photos. The loved one's physical and mental well-being, as well as the caregiver's attempts to infuse everyday activities with hope, purpose, and joy, may all be observed by family and friends. The care provider can also be observed implementing the tailored care plan.

Using Technology to Foster Connection and Increase Engagement 

In today's society, email, social media, and phone conversations keep many of us linked to one another and the rest of the world. Using these tools to create a sense of closeness may be just as beneficial as in-person visits – especially when being together in the same room is not possible.

Our living assistance services can help elders overcome emotions of loneliness and social isolation via innovative solutions. This may include: 

  • Regularly scheduled phone and video calls
  • Texting to stay connected to friends, family, and community
  • Games and activities that promote cognitive function and memory
  • Facilitating online activity, such as access to music, dance, photography, and hobbies
  • Utilizing our SafetyCare Products to ensure your loved one can be safe at home - even when alone
  • Sharing of family photos and event recordings
  • Shopping online for groceries
  • Scheduling and attending virtual doctor's appointments

Benefits of Seniors Using Technology

Utilizing modern technology comes with a host of benefits for the senior population. It can vastly impact their quality of life by keeping them healthy and socially connected to the ones they care most about. It can also provide respite for family caregivers trying to juggle caregiving responsibilities with their personal lives. Below are just a few benefits of integrating technology into senior care assistance services for seniors and their families:

  • Seniors who utilize technology and social media are shown to be less likely to suffer from chronic illnesses and to experience depression than those who do not.
  • Seniors agree that using technology has made their life easier for running errands, getting medications, and finding reliable transportation.
  • Modern technology is mentally stimulating for older adults as there are endless games, apps, and streaming services for them to take advantage of.
  • Thanks to safety gadgets that notify relatives and the proper channels in the event of an accident or fall, seniors and their families no longer have to worry about being at home alone.
