Harmony Healthcare International, (HHI) Launches Social Media Video for Skilled Nursing Facilities
Date:3/22/2016

The social media revolution has swept across America. This communications change cuts across most age and demographic groups and has transformed the way Americans live, work and play. One demographic that lags behind in adaptation and may benefit the most from social media use is America’s seniors. Harmony Healthcare International,(HHI), a leader in healthcare consulting services, sets out to change attitudes and to help facilitate social media adaptation in both the post-acute care environment and among the nation’s elder population by launching an educational video, “Engage Don’t Just Age: Keeping Seniors Engage Through the Power of Social Media”.

“Socialization is critical to health. With the elderly, it is not only the physical or cognitive disorder but it is important to look at the whole patient; the propensity towards isolation in today’s society leads to depression,” said Kris Mastrangelo, President and CEO, Harmony Healthcare International, (HHI). “Social media, as a tool, provides people with connectivity to society. I have literally seen elders light up when ‘facetiming’ or ‘skyping’ with loved-ones across the miles. This type of simple socialization is critical to health and well-being.”

Harmony Healthcare enlisted four senior citizens and their grandchildren and entered into a delightful exploration of what social media means across generations, the uncertainties around technology use, and the common attitudes, both young and old, about adaptability and use. The video also looks at social media and its impact from the caregivers’ perspective and makes an argument for social media as a healthcare tool.

“Social media can act as an intervention in the aging process. Using these technology tools is advantageous in keeping the brain young and moving forward,” said Mastrangelo, “Stagnancy equals death both physical and mental and the benefits here include increased brain connections, and better decision making and problem solving capabilities.”
