ComForcare Home Care Encourages Seniors to Connect with Family and Doctors Online

Home health care services are expanding as doctors, care professionals, and family members connect online to enhance the continuity of care for clients. 

ComForcare Home Care serves individuals of all ages who are dealing with the challenges of aging, recovering from surgery or an illness, or managing a chronic condition.  Many of the home care clients are seniors who prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home as they age.  Seniors are currently the largest growing population of the United States, and for the first time, more than half of American adults age sixty-five and older use the internet.  As technology continues to advance, seniors are finding new ways to connect with their family, friends, caregivers, and home care or healthcare professionals.

With the influx of portable and easy-to-use laptops, tablets, and other personal devices, more and more seniors are able to connect online.  One of the newest ways seniors are using these laptops and tablets is to have virtual visits with pharmacists.  A recent article on Minnesota Public Radio tells the story of a 78 year-old woman who is finding success using her laptop to converse with her pharmacist from the comfort of her living room.  As the years go on, it becomes increasingly difficult, yet still important, to get out and see the pharmacist in person.  To ensure patients are taking their prescription medications correctly, some pharmacists are making themselves available for quick consultations via a webcam.

Here are some other ways seniors are connecting with family, home care, and healthcare professionals:

 

-          To keep in touch with out-of-state family and friends using cell phones webcams, Facebook, emails, and more

-          To watch videos and see photos of family through photo/video sharing sites like YouTube

-          To maintain health records online

-          To communicate with health insurance and providers online

-          To order prescriptions and groceries online

-          To find medical specialists, home care services, and other providers in their area

-          To share reviews and information regarding home care and healthcare specialists

 

Home care service providers like those from ComForcare Home Care can also assist clients by helping to write emails or access family photos, videos, and emails online.  The internet is a powerful resource for families and healthcare professionals and can greatly enhance the care and well-being of individuals who choose to take advantage of the many online tools now available.
