Elderly Care in San Angelo, TX, and the Surrounding Area
Integrating technology with elderly care for seniors
At Comfort Keepers, we firmly believe that using the latest technologies can have a favorable effect on minimizing social isolation and improving the quality of life of clients who receive our customized elderly care services in San Angelo and the surrounding communities of Concho Valley, TX.
Transparency of Care
In that regard, the care we provide is the most beneficial when family caregivers and professional caregivers work together as a team. Our elderly care providers utilize online portals to share notes, photos, and other info with family members looking for updates on their loved one. We like to keep things as transparent as possible by keeping you in the loop on how our care plan is being implemented and frequently reporting back on your parent’s physical and mental health.
Using Technology to Keep Mom or Dad Connected & Engaged
One of the best ways to stay connected in today’s somewhat detached world is through modern technologies – social media, various apps, emails, and phone calls. It is how we keep in touch with those we care about when we cannot be in the same place together. For seniors, these technologies offer a great alternative to in-person visits and help foster a sense of connection with family members that cannot come over every week.
In many ways, regularly keeping in touch with family and friends is crucial to your loved one’s mental and emotional well-being – it can prevent them from constantly feeling lonely or isolated, which can have negative effects on their health and even cause cognitive decline.
To help your loved one keep depression and loneliness at bay, our elderly care professionals can implement modern solutions and show them how to:
- Make phone and video calls with the family
- Share and receive photos and event recordings
- Play online games that help boost memory
- Listen to music, view pictures, watch tutorials for hobbies
- And much, much more
GrandPad – Easy Access to Assistive Technology for Seniors
Another great solution that will enable your loved one to stay engaged is our GrandPad device – a user-friendly tablet designed especially for aging adults. This device can be used to enjoy games, make calls, send videos and photos, chat, go online, and so much more – it is a simple and secure way to keep your loved one happy and entertained at home.
