Senior Retirement Residence: Staying In Touch Remotely

Residing in a senior retirement residence can be lonely at any time. The current shelter-in-place restrictions due to the coronavirus make it even more so. Fortunately, with today’s technologies, it is possible for families to stay in touch with loved ones at their senior retirement residence in Kansas City from a distance, whether you live an hour away or are in a different state.

When you can’t be there in person all the time, using electronic devices to help your loved one in a senior retirement residence stay connected can be beneficial. You will be more at ease when you can see your elderly parent’s appearance and hear their voice; plus, your loved one will have the assurance they are still loved and cared for. This is especially important for dementia patients because it helps avoid problems like depression and isolation.

Family members can see and talk to their elderly loved ones from the safety and comfort of their own home. Through the use of cell phones and computers, regular voice calls and video calls are possible.

Social media and email are also popular ways to stay in contact with one another. Nowadays, with many more features than the old flip phones, cell phones are used by many residents in a senior retirement residence. When they’re feeling lonely and disconnected from family members, a simple phone call or text can brighten their day. In addition, caregivers can easily program a senior’s phone to dial a list of contacts with one touch.

For the more advanced seniors, iPhones and iPads have voice recognition systems that allow them to simply tell the device who they want to call and it will dial the number for them. Clover Care Home Senior Retirement Residence Kansas City Staying In Touch With FamilyWith Smartphones and tablets seniors can enjoy teleconferencing through FaceTime and Skype, which are also available on laptop computers and traditional desktop computers that have a video camera. Seniors can see the faces of their grandkids and other family members, and it’s also a way for the adult children to make sure their elderly parents look healthy and cared for at the senior retirement residence if they can’t be there in person every day.

In addition to cell phones and video messaging, Email is another reliable way to stay in touch on a regular basis. Many seniors prefer to write letters than to send a text message. Email has the benefit of being delivered in seconds instead of days and is a great way to send photos.
