Our local agency here in Pittsford, NY is a proud provider of the Comfort Keepers grandPad. This is a tablet that is specially designed to meet the needs of seniors in our community. Seniors are able to connect with friends and family while also staying up to date with the latest in news, sports, and more. Our senior care team is ready to assist your loved one in showing them how to operate the tablet and how to get the most out of it.
Comfort Keepers looks at technology as a gateway for seniors and not as a barrier. In fact, this technology can help your loved one live a happier life. All of the photos, apps, games, and calls made on the grandPad are easy to access and your loved one will be able to keep in touch with those he or she holds closest to the heart. Senior care professionals have received many positive reactions and responses to these tablets too.
Researchers have continued to find a correlation between social isolation and harmful effects. In fact, isolation is able to affect your senior both mentally and physically. Senior care experts say that studies performed previously show that isolated seniors have overall poorer health and higher blood pressure than those who are active.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that feelings of loneliness are often linked to higher death rates and also dementia in seniors. The team at Comfort Keepers is ready to help you keep your loved one as socially active as possible. We focus on an interactive caregiving model and it has worked wonders.
