Explain your idea in details:

Elderill is an useful and simple app. Its main objective is to provide more peace of mind to the caregivers and bring independence to the elderly. In this platform, the user must introduce his or her name, the pills he or she should ingest and the hours between each one of the same type. The app will assign each user a pill box and will send a notification when it is time to take a pill indicating the name of the user and the name of the pill. Moreover, the app will have a menu with different options: Adding a new user, adding a pill, removing a pill, or showing the the different pill boxes associated to each user. The app will be programmed using Python.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This app is especially dedicated to the elderly who have to take a lot of pills and have trouble remembering when to take them. Also, this app can be used for their caregivers. Moreover, anyone who wants to and has to take a considerable amount of medication can also use it. Users of the application will be asked through questionnaires or evaluations to see if the app has helped them to better organize pills.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

At first, I would try to implement the app in some residences where the red cross works and in my city. Then, I would investigate how the app works, if it needs any improvement and the views of caregivers and the elderly. If the situation of the elderly and their administration of pills has improved, I will try to expand the app to other centers in other cities in Spain. As collaborators I would first consider NGOs like the Red Cross.

Your profile

My name María de la Almudena Martín Gómez, but most people call me Almudena :) I am a Data Science and Engineering and Telecommunication System Engineering second year student. In addition to the fact that I am passionate about science and computers, I really love entrepreneurship. In particular, I am a member of JumpStartUp Community (a community of 50 young people selected from all over Spain who help primitive companies to develop). Moreover, I have been a finalist in national and international contests with some projects. On the other hand, I have been a Red Cross volunteer for many years. This allows me to detect a problem: The difficulty for nurses and people on whom the elderly depend to remember and organize the amount of pills senior citizens should swallow. That is the reason why I plan to create this useful and meaningful app.
