Problem Statement

How might we help older people in quarantine to stay connected, stay motivated and experience an improvement in their mental health?


Customer / Problem

Our customers are elderly people who are finding it challenging to connect with family and friends during isolation and lockdowns due to Covid-19. Many apps that connect people do not cater to those who are unfamiliar with technology.


Solution

Bubble Buddies provide an app for the elderly to give them something to look forward to during lockdown and isolation. The app allows them to easily chat and call their family and friends and is easy to use. It has audio options, visuals, voice control and large buttons, making it less daunting than other apps. Having something like this could change their outlook on life and help them realise how easy technology can be.
