The world’s population is getting older. Across the globe, people are living longer thanks to improvements in healthcare, nutrition and technology. This population shift brings with it incredible possibilities, but also a new set of challenges. How do we care for our elderly? Especially those with chronic conditions.
Just last year, my elderly dad had an emergency heart condition, he tried to call me but was unable to speak clearly, fortunately help arrived in time and nothing bad happened. This serve as a wake up call for me and my family, if we are facing this issue, someone out there would be facing it too. The episode makes me ponder and conclude that a solution like a simple mobile apps might be the obvious answer since both my folks carries them whenever they go.
