To the surprise of many of us, there will be around 2 billion people in the world who will be above the age of 60 by 2050. This is a statistic by WHO (World Health Organisation) so we have to trust the figures for sure. Moreover, it is quite hard to digest that the number of elderly people are increasing day by day in the developed countries. Thanks to the better and improving healthcare facilities.

Elderly Healthcare management with mobile application development

What is surprising is that not only healthcare facilities are increasing day by day but the mobile apps in mobile application development that can take elderly healthcare management to the next level are coming to the market.

What all are the benefits and what are the features of healthcare apps?
Before we move onto the features that these types of apps provide and help the elderly people. Why are these dedicated apps needed by the way? Well, as we all know that as our age advances, we face many types of problems like hearing loss, vision problems and walking problems. These need some extra features that would help in commuting from one place to other in an easy way as well as without having the need to take help from any other as well as feel independent.

What features make a perfect app for the elders? 
For some, it may feel like what is the need for these kind of apps. But, after you get to know about the things it can do for them.


1. See big and “Read aloud” feature:   To start with, these kinds of features were only available with iOS development only. With time, Android smartphones also had this feature and then, every mobile  app development company started creating apps that can use these features to the best possible extent. Elderly people find it easier to hear than see and see the bigger tasks also.
 
2. Special attention to Alzheimer’s patients:   The real goal of these apps is that the patients with critical diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia are given special attention. This is possible with in-app built-in photo capturing app to give a hassle-free and seamless experience to the users of the app in Android development. Sharing the pics will be much more easier, also they will be able to do the things more easily like recording and sending the messages.

3. Remind to work out on time! :   Health and fitness apps are very important in this stage of life. If one does not take proper time out for the work outs, health can degrade for sure. So, every mobile app development company wants to create apps that can be very much handy to the elderly people. 

4. On-time Medication dosage:  The elderly people should never miss their medications as a simple missing out can cost them dearly. One can rule out this problem easily if they make use of the apps which can set reminders and alarms related to the medications that they have to take- be it pills or supplements!


Conclusion:

There is no doubt about the fact that all the above features in iOS develop in an app for the elderly people will help them in their daily tasks and also, take care of their health and keep them entertained if Alexa by Amazon is used to play music and recognise voices easily.
