Guiding Seniors in Using the Internet and Social Media

Guiding Seniors in Using the Internet and Social Media

Seniors under Companionship Care may see life as dull nowadays. As part of the vulnerable sector against the COVID-19 virus, they must still observe safety precautions despite acquiring a vaccination. And they may look for some entertainment from social media sites and apps to spend their free time. Some engage in chatting or watching clips – others enjoy creating video content, upload them online to have fun, and make people happy.

As much we want our grandparents to enjoy the internet, we also want to share some tips to avoid any negative situations and effects on our beloved seniors, particularly their mental health.

  • Do not provide vital information to anyone.

    Remind the elders to whom you provide Caregiving services not to disclose personal and bank information and their passwords to strangers. They might be prey to online hackers and fraudulent activities.

  • Ask someone knowledgeable before clicking links.

    Again, cybercriminals are lurking on all sides of the web. One wrong click and seniors can find their credit cards used in fraudulent activities. Inform them to always consult you or their Caregiver in Arizona when unsure.

  • Never mind the bashers.

    We cannot please everyone. But despite knowing this fact, negative comments can be disheartening at times. Always show seniors the brighter side of things. They will encounter people of different views and opinions, and negative comments are typical.

We at Holistic Care Options, Inc. always aim for the betterment of our clients in many aspects. And that is why we do our very best to provide affordable and personalized Home Care in Laveen, Arizona, not only to seniors but to people of all ages.
