Role of Virtual Care in Healthcare of Senior Citizens
The lifespan of human beings has increased multifold due to the advancement in healthcare. The way healthcare organizations function to serve seniors has also been changing over time. It provides support in the way of keeping the seniors as active as possible, allowing them to perform physical activities which they want to and as a consequence improves their emotional well-being too.
With the population of seniors increasing all over the world, healthcare varies from person to person, even among senior citizens and it has begun to rely on technology to provide the care they need. Virtual care is the best example of this that comes to aid in healthcare provision and also when and where the aged need it. Virtual care needs screens and internet connectivity, both of which have become must-haves in today’s world. Aged people too quickly adapt to technology with proper guidance. So, it continues to be useful in treating senior people in the post-covid scenario too. The pandemic was just an eye-opener to realize the importance of virtual care and has put healthcare organizations the world over on the road to explore further its uses.
