Kiran Bedi launches mobile app to help senior citizens in distress

Kiran Bedi launches mobile app to help senior citizens in distress
16 June 2016 Current Affairs: The “HelpAge SOS App’’ was launched by Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi at Raj Nivas.

The app provides for an SOS-Save our Seniors button to immediately reach to the counsellor desk of Help Age for rendering emergency help and assistance, apart from health related information. It has 24x7 functionality and aims at helping elders in distress at any given time.

The Lt. Governor called upon the NGO to work in tandem with the Social Welfare Department and stated that the NGOs would be integrated to share their expertise and strengthen each other's functioning for rendering enhanced services to the people.The primary and first use of the App is to provide one-click emergency services to senior citizens. The app can be downloaded from www.helpageindia.org or from the Google Play Store.

The app has been launched in English and Hindi and other languages will follow. The app is GPS enabled and picks up the location of the caller and will dial into the particular State Office.

The app is meant not just for elders but also for society in general, especially the younger generation. Last year, the organisation had surveyed youngsters to understand their perception about elder abuse and whether they would step in to help.Nationally, nearly 60 per cent of youth responded that they were willing to take direct action if they came across a case of elder abuse.HelpAge will of course protect the identity of the caller in case they wish to remain anonymous.
