Retirement is an entirely different experience than it was just a decade ago. Today, the elderly have access to a wide range of apps that have been designed to make their lives much easier. Whether you are looking to keep in touch with your loved ones who live far away or manage the medications you have to take, you can be sure there’s an app for it. In this article, we share with you some apps to ease seniors’ lives you should try out.
You may already be using Google Maps for navigation purposes, but did you know that you can also use it to mark where your car is parked? If you tend to get lost or have some trouble getting around in new places, all you need to do is mark where your car is parked before getting out. When you are all done with your shopping and ready to head home, simply head back to Google Maps and navigate your way back to your car the usual way.
If you want to get started on audiobooks for any reason, Audible is the app for you. Whether reading has become hard for you due to vision problems or you simply prefer listening to reading, you can access a wide range of books on the Audible app. Many Kindle books are also available as audiobooks.
Medisafe is a medication management app that will remind you when you need to take your pills. All you need to do is enter your prescriptions into the app, and it will even alert you to any potentially harmful interactions that can occur. Reminders will also be sent when your prescriptions are running low, so you can be sure that you are never left without at any point.
If you no longer drive, getting where you need to be, when you need to be, can be challenging. With an app like Uber where you can book rides and even go for ridesharing, you no longer have to be stuck at home. Simply enter your destination and let the driver get you to your appointment or date safely and timely.
