The current technology boom is not only directly beneficial to seniors but also to those who may be taking care of them. Scheduling, tracking, researching info, and sharing updates both medical and personal has never been easier with these companion apps to our previous recommended smartphone apps for seniors.
Leaving out such apps as GreatCall Link, Comfort Zone Check-in, or Care.com Mobile which require a subscription service or the purchase of further equipment, this first set of apps are advertised as being specifically tailored for caregivers, especially for those involved in eldercare or seniorcare. The iOS platform (for iPhone or iPad) in particular has several popular apps dedicated to caring for those suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia.
