The elderly Indian population is one of the fastest growing in the world. At 110 million, India has the second largest global population of ageing citizens. By 2050, that number will probably increase to 240 million. Now a days, many people are migrating to metropolitan cities for their jobs and live far away from their parents. In this scenario, their old parents have to do all work by their own, which creates burden on their head and children also worry about their parents how they will handle alone. One of the biggest fears for most senior citizens living alone is how to access an emergency facility, if required, especially at night. In India, there are many families at the moment who are going through this situation. For most Indian senior citizens, the biggest concerns are healthcare costs, lack of financial support and isolation. In addition, most of the aged are not accorded the dignity of care they deserve in later life. Due to the growing age of parents, increasing heath issues and deprivation of knowledge of online media, they are unable to do all works which are necessary for them. They need help but there is no one to help them. And if there is someone for help, it is difficult to trust them.
