I have a single parent, living alone, who I could easily go a week without checking in on. To take care of my anxiety around whether or not she's okay, and avoid calling every single day to check in, I'm setting up a service that will send her a text once a day to make sure she's okay. If she doesn't reply, I'll get a notification, and then give her a call to make sure all is well.
Do you have a single, aging parent who you'd like to worry less about? Is this something you'd like to be able to use? My parent is totally comfortable texting, so this wouldn't necessarily work for every aging person (like those who don't have cell phones)! She's in her early 70s, so she's been using a cell phone for a long time.
My hope is that it'll take some stress of me, and not require us to talk every day, even if we have nothing to talk about!
What do you think? What would you like to see from a service like this?
