Technology is not only a great source of entertainment for people who are ageing – it also has a number of positive benefits.
With technology, your mother will have the opportunity to keep in touch with family and friends online via social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Skype. They can shop online, watch Netflix or YouTube and keep updated with the news.
If you would like to introduce your mum to technology and you don’t have enough time to teach them how to navigate a tablet, smartphone or laptop, there are care workers on Better Caring who are passionate about helping people who are ageing feel empowered by technology.

Spoil your mum this Mother’s Day with a beauty treatment! Book them in for a massage, manicure, pedicure, or facial.
If you’re feeling creative this Mother’s Day – try making your mother a photo album full of all your family memories – add your personal touch by handwriting labels and captions. Design a mug on Vista Print and have it professionally printed or make them a personalised hamper filled with things they love – such as: food, wine, bath products, tea, and magazines.
On Better Caring, you can hire workers directly based on criteria that are important to your mother. For example, you can hire a worker with cultural specific sensitivities. Does your mum like Indian food? You can hire an support worker who specialises in cooking Indian food. Try filtering your search results on Better Caring – click ‘advanced filters‘.
We know that our time is the most valuable to them. Organise to visit them with the rest of your family! You could look through old photo albums or play board games (Articulate is our favorite). If you can’t see your mother, make a special phone call or send them a video recording.
