The Top Apps Seniors Love

Yes, it's true. Smartphones have become integral elements of our lives. While some of us may be reluctant to embrace this technology, claiming authors Ray Bradbury and George Orwell may have been right all along, it's obvious that some positivity has indeed come with these gadgets. They even may be able to help our elders.

Some apps provide solutions to problems we didn't even know we had. Here are some apps that are perfect for caregivers and seniors. Check out these helpful tools, courtesy of US News.

  • Lyft and Uber - The popular alternative to taxis and other transportation services, Lyft and Uber are effective solutions if your senior needs to get to a particular destination such as appointments or stores.
  • GrubHub and Amazon Restaurants - While usually only useful in urban areas, these two apps can provide meals from your seniors' favorite restaurant - at a fee of course.
  • Medisafe and CareZone - These apps are helpful tools that can help your senior manage their medications. From dosages to reminders, they can be significantly beneficial.
  • Shipt and Instacart - If your senior needs help grocery shopping, there's an app for that! Actually, there are two. While these both charge certain fees, they may become helpful if a caregiver is unavailable to assist with errands.

As you can see, there are many benefits iPhone and Android devices can bring to your senior's life. From grocery shopping to medication assistance, thousands of other apps will change they way you handle caregiving responsibilities.
