Families all deal with aging parents in remote proximity to their parents or grand parents. Even families with high needs patients need simple technical tools to provide social support without the technical maintenance and troubleshooting normal tools provide. Technology can bring people closer and allow them to check up on each other emotionally and provide extended care that is available to them in their health plan. It can also alert other caregivers to potential high-risk situations.
Using softer color palette and large simplistic button styles the Eldercare app was created for aging baby boomers and caregivers of aging relatives. Using the ipad allows users to tap into their own closed social network without the hassle of a fully functional Facebook or something robust. Sticking to simple functionality yet allowing users to connect with those they love and caregivers they need. Utilizing the app to connect remotely with your aging relatives allows them to keep in touch with you and allow you to keep in touch with them. This provides a flexible safety net of caring support staff, family and friends as well as a home monitoring device.
