When your loved one resides in a senior living community, staying close to them is important to you. You want to stay connected to your parents or loved one, even when you aren’t able to physically spend time with them. The question is, how? Technology has become a part of our daily lives to help us stay informed and to stay connected with friends and family, including loved ones in senior living. More and more seniors are becoming familiar with modern technology and using it to stay connected.
Senior living communities also use technology to help keep residents safe. Wi-Fi and 24-hour emergency call systems are now commonplace in most senior living communities. With modern technology, staying connected to your loved one doesn’t have to be difficult. These solutions can help you connect with your loved one from afar.
How does technology connect us? With instant messaging, video calls and social media platforms, technology has made communication fairly simple. Here are a few ways you can use technology to stay connected to your loved ones in senior living:
Now that you’re more familiar with different ways to communicate with technology, how will you stay connected to your loved ones? It is imperative now more than ever that you continue to reach out and connect with your friends and family members who you’re unable to physically visit. By simply calling your loved one twice a week or sending them a few photos, you can really help to make them feel less isolated during this time. Technology helps make it easy to reconnect and have a conversation in a matter of seconds.
We’ve designed our Advent Christian Village Lifestyle around giving residents and their families peace of mind, a sense of independence and quality senior care. In fact, our staff members have recently set-up video chats for residents to connect with their loved ones. With the use of iPads and tablet technology, members can visit and see their families during this time of uncertainty and global pandemic. To take advantage of these technology tools, call Good Samaritan Center at (386) 658-5573 or Dacier Manor at (386) 658-5575 to schedule a video chat with your loved one.
At Advent Christian Village, your loved ones will have the opportunity for personal growth, physical improvement and spiritual development. If you’re interested in receiving more information on our lifestyle or how you can stay close with your loved ones, please reach out to us or give us a call at 1-800-647-3353.
