Parents and their children are often at ends when it comes to senior care, but Sensara is a fantastic app for the elderly that helps keep family members in the loop and lets seniors maintain their independence.

The Sensara app works in tandem with in-home sensors to remotely monitor the daily habits of a senior, so that no invasive bracelets or wearable technology is required. The app for Android and Apple devices makes a note of events like rising from bed, having meals and when a senior comes and goes from home. Since the app tracks these patterns over time, one of the most useful features of Sensara is that it will make note of suspicious activity, or a lack of activity, and send a notification for a family member in the loop to check in on them.
