 Now a New App Called 'ESeniorCare' can Help Seniors Live Better

Researchers from the University of Notre Dame have developed a new app that is aimed at enhancing the physical health, vitality and brain fitness of seniors residing in independent living communities.

Unlike many available apps for seniors that merely track data, this app, called eSeniorCare, creates a personalized socio-ecological construct around the senior. It not only helps empower and engage the seniors, but also provides a continuity of care allowing health workers to proactively reach out to at-risk seniors when they need help, while still allowing them to maintain their independence.

Seniors can connect with care providers by sending concerns and questions as text or voice recordings. A physical health component of the app allows seniors to track a variety of health goals. The app also features medication scheduling and management, medication history, medication reminders and medication adherence.

One of eSeniorCare's most popular features with seniors is brain games designed to enhance cognitive health and avoid impairment of mental function. Kimberly Green Reeves said, "eSeniorCare empowers our residents to maintain their independence by providing a framework for medication, nutrition and pain management."

The app is being pilot tested at senior independent living facilities in the South Bend area and is not yet available to the general public.
