With over 900 million users on Facebook, it should come as no surprise that many use social media to remain connected with one another. For Parc Communities residents staying connected with loved ones is of upmost importance. The great thing about social media is that families can keep up with each other’s lives despite the distance. Parc residents have siblings, children, and grandchildren spread across the country and with busy schedules it can be difficult to get everyone together at the same time. Google+ Hangouts provide a great social media outlet that allows families to catch up with one another face-to-face through web cams. Not only is social media a good way to connect seniors with family, but also old friends and colleagues.
Sites such as Facebook allow seniors to see pictures of their friends, family, co-workers, etc. as well as current events in their lives. Besides being able to see what their loved ones are up to, the next time they visit with each other they are already informed on what’s going on in their friends’lives. YouTube allows families to upload and share home videos quickly, giving seniors the opportunity to watch those special moments such as a grandbaby learning to walk.
Several of our residents have already jumped on the technology bandwagon and use iPads to browse pictures posted online and interact with others. Parc Communities also have a computer center available for all residents to use.
