Recently, we ran across a Tumbler post about the idea of adopting elderly people who have no close family members to take care of them. As college students, trying to figure out who we are, we can sometimes relate to the feeling of isolation and loneliness experienced by these elderly citizens on a daily basis. Connecting these two groups of people provides opportunity for both of them to have a support system and grow together
What it does
It is a mobile app that matches youth with senior citizens in elderly homes based on common goals, interests and location.
How we built it
We have built the application using Facebook's React Native and new toolchain called EXPO. The app is a multiplatform that can run in both iOs and Android
Challenges we ran into
Time Management was a big challenge since we started the whole thing by scratch
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to implement the minimum viable product for presentation to get our idea across. We are happy to share this project with people.
