Smartphone Apps for Caregivers

This is certainly not for everyone (yet!), but for technophiles who have outfitted the ones they care for, there’s a short new article that discusses smartphone apps for “aging in place.”

The article discusses an app that will help if your loved one wanders (and you can somehow ensure she or he keeps a smartphone on them), if your loved one has a webcam, and — for real techies — a whole system for video monitoring.  Check it out here: http://www.aarp.org/technology/innovations/info-06-2011/smartphone-apps-aging-in-place.html

One response to “Smartphone Apps for Caregivers

  1. Tell My Geo looks like a really useful App especially for early onset Alzheimer’s. But this could be useful for any senior with a medical condition as it can store medical info, doctor contact details, etc. We will probably see quite a few of these in the very near future.
