SOCIAL ISSUE

Elder citizens spending their retirement life are not being treated fair enough in our system, We have analyzed the situation and divided them into three categories firstly those who were totally ignored and left with nothing but hardest period of their life, second category is financial and economically stable but away from someone who really care for them and third category is the majority who had everything but got alone at the late evening of life being ignored by loved ones in this fast hectic world, they never wish to be taken away to a old age care facility to lead their second childhood they wanted to be cared and treated with love and compassion within their homes, not only medical support but every other aspects they loved to enjoy in their early life, they need someone to listen and ask about their day, they need assistance in other sectors and needs in life, they wanted to be connected to the community and never want to be left behind alone .as per recent studies it's been found that next generation grandparents in India have higher expectations about their retirement life for which our system and community is not equipped.


PROPOSED SOLUTION

We are creating a well-structured platform that enables us to connect socially driven youth of our country with elder citizens who are in need of love and support from society, we are planning to provide the services through an interfacing device designed and dedicated for being easily handled by elder citizens which being connected to a network of young citizens who are awaiting to help those in need, the services can have both paid and unpaid versions as per the need. The services range from mentally supporting chat sessions to medical aid, travel aid, technical legal and other assistance also possibilities of arranging gatherings of same age groups and fostering possibilities with old ages homes are also being analyzed, we want them to receive the love and support they wish at their homes, on another side it promotes part-time job culture among students in our country also the service would not be run for the incentives or perks youngsters receive for lending their hands of support but the valuable experience they receive. Also, here we are changing the concept of new era technologies dividing generations and creating gap within minds, we are using technology to create new bond between generations and catering both with a better experience in life .our project aims to create a technology driven service platform joining teenage and old age benefiting both


CONCERN

We have been to old age homes many times and came across those grandparents left alone and ignored at innumerable homes intentionally or not .our society believes old age is the time to be spent in some corner of house with medicine, prayer and food, and they were left alone with none even to listen like spending an expired life awaiting death, also we had seen for ourselves how much separated is our generation from them, though we write and speak old age as second childhood and another beautiful stress-free period of life it is never so easy for the majority of them and the upcoming generation of elder citizens including our parents is leading a more advanced lifestyle which they never wanted to be taken away due to ageing so the need for improving and developing our system to support them with all their needs and not just a home nurse is necessary .also we never intend to disturb them with services which they do not wish for hence we develop a smart interfacing system that enables us to listen and customize services suiting their needs. Also, our government has been taking steps to bring part-time job culture among students in our state but hasn't got enough wind to float we believe our platform can create numerous jobs suiting each one's ability skill and social commitment also to regain the bond and love we are loosing between people at this fast moving world. We personally want to never again read through news of grandparent being left to inhuman situations denied of love, care, support and human rights
