The idea of the Senior Safety App was born with an idea to give caregivers a smart monitoring online system to keep an eye on the elderly loved ones. A brainchild of Dr. Devikaa Manghnani – an accomplished reconstructive surgeon, she wanted to create an app that bridged the emotional dynamics between the seniors and their loved ones.
When Dr. Devikaa Manghnani approached Pulse Solutions, she wanted to create an app that will help to build a bridge between family members and senior citizens without any party feeling dependent or intrusive. Dr. Devikaa wanted us to design an app that is not only functional, but also easy to use, free, and driven solely towards the needs of senior citizens.
While there were many such apps in the market, they all lacked one primary focus that was essential to helping seniors – simplicity.
We took up the challenge to design an unobtrusive app that will help seniors stay in touch with their family and connect with the world while staying safe.
After brainstorming the requirements of the project, our team designed senior-friendly features to be incorporated into the app. Here are some of the features we designed for Senior Safety App:
Alert multiple people: When in danger, seniors can quickly summon help by sending text-alerts with a simple tap on the phone – along with the phone’s current location. Another noteworthy functionality is round-robin call option to call all emergency contacts until connected.
Location monitoring: 24/7 live location tracking with full location history and street addresses.
Automatic fall alerts – The built-in motion sensors quickly send alerts in case of a fall. The sensitivity of the fall can be customized to match the user’s lifestyle.
Geo-fencing: This lets the user configure a custom geo-fence to receive an alert when the device leaves or enters a particular area. This feature is especially useful for patients with Dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Inactivity Alert – For seniors living alone, this feature is a boon, as it updates caregivers if the phone has remained inactive for a defined period.
Low-battery Alert – It sends you the message when the phone has low battery levels.
Reports on the app – You can receive regular reports on app-usage to protect seniors from online scams and phone abuse. You can also receive notification alerts for app installs and uninstalls.
The most significant benefit of the Senior Safety App is that it has helped to bring peace of mind to caregivers when it comes to the safety of their loved ones and has given the seniors the confidence to live an independent life in their familiar surroundings.
