Our agency here in Madison, CT is committed to providing the best care to seniors in the local area. Comfort Keepers is proud to be able to bring the grandPad tablet to your loved ones. This tablet allows seniors to connect with their family and friends, look at photos, play games, listen to music, and check the news. Our personal care assistant team is ready to assist your loved one in learning how to use the tablet and learning what options are available on it.
Comfort Keepers thinks of technology as a gateway for seniors to live a happy and healthy life. All of the photos, games, apps, and calls on the grandPad tablet are easy to use and your loved one can stay up to date with current events and family members. Personal care assistant teams have received positive responses to the tablets from locals in the area.
Researchers have continued to find that social isolation is very harmful for seniors and can have a negative effect on both their mental and physical health. Your loved one’s personal care assistant wants to warn you that isolated seniors have higher blood pressure readings and poorer health overall.
When it comes to feelings of isolation and loneliness, seniors who feel this way can experience higher rates of dementia and also early death. The personal care assistant team at Comfort Keepers knows how important it is for your senior to remain socially active and our team operates using an interactive caregiving model to ensure that your loved one is involved in their care.
