There are many apps that can be useful for seniors and just about anyone else to address their safety concerns.
Please note: these apps are not endorsed by this website and/or by any parties involved. Do your due diligence to ensure the app you choose is best for you.
Here are three popular apps that do the job:
A personal safety app in which users create a social safety network of people who are notified in the event of an emergency or where users feel unsafe.
A popular app amongst families, Life360 offers advanced driving and location safety features and location sharing for everyone involved in a created group. This app works in real time.
Cost: Free trial for 14 days
This app aims to combat the problem of a 911 operator not knowing what a callers exact location is when dialing the emergency number. When a user enables the app, it begins notifying the proper authorities the moment your finger leaves the phone. If a user does not input the disarm code, the authorities still make a visit to your exact location.
While there are many other apps available to make safety a priority, this is a great place to start.
