“The times they are a-changin’.” This pertains to most everything in our world today, but none more so than how seniors communicate. A digital-savvy senior now uses email, Facebook, and a cellphone when they used to use a landline and get all their news from the newspaper.
Senior home care in Toronto today finds our elderly using all kinds of “newfangled” apps for information, entertainment, and organization. If your loved one wants to stay in touch, recommend some of these 7 helpful apps for the elderly. Maybe they already have them, and they can teach you about some new ones.
This free app will keep anyone entertained, but your senior chooses the kind of music they want. They can pick a genre, time period or artist and create their own playlist.
This is another free app on Android phones that is useful for everyone. Your senior doesn’t have to wait for the local weather on TV anymore. If they are planning to go somewhere in the afternoon, Dark Sky will pinpoint the forecast for their locality. It is so specific, it will send alerts that rain or snow will begin at an exact time.
This well-being app is beneficial for both the senior and family members. You can track how they are doing, where they are, how they slept, their activity, any long-term trends. If you are involved in senior home care in Toronto, this app can give you peace of mind. Send it to other members of your family circle.
