New APP for Senior Citizens from HelpAge India
Here is an announcement on a New APP from HelpAge India for Senior Citizens.
Those who have used it may give comments here.
Over the past few years HelpAge India have been conducting surveys trying to assess the extent, impact of Elder Abuse and create awareness on the issue. Last year we took on the youth perspective. This year a Mobile App called the ‘HelpAge SOS’ App designed to help not just the victims of Elder Abuse, but also enable others – neighbors, friends, family and Samaritans access help easily.
The App will be launched on the morning of Tuesday, June 14, 2016 to mark WEAAD.
Functioning of the HelpAge SOS App
· The one-touch SOS button will connect to the local HelpAge India Elder Helpline. The Helpline staff will not just offer help and rescue, but also in cases required, connect to the Police, Hospitals, Old Age Homes and experts like Lawyers and Counselors.
· The App will offer ready access to information critical for elders on - Elder Abuse, legal rights, entitlements from the Govt., healthcare and maintenance tips, other schemes and facilities such as reverse mortgage, health insurance, pensions etc.
· The third feature would be information on market discounts available for senior citizens especially on the purchase of medicines, use of hospitals, path labs etc. This information will be city wise and GPS driven.
To begin with, the App will be in English & Hindi on Android platform; local languages will be attempted later. Other platforms will be added later.
