Ensuring your elderly loved ones are safe and secure is not always easy, but the POM4U app will give you some peace of mind in that regard. The London-based POM4U app is a web-based tool that allows you to keep track of the elderly in your family by having them perform check-ins.

A great way to monitor the safety of the people in your life who are living alone or traveling by themselves, the POM4U app ('POM' stands for peace of mind) requires the person to check in on a daily basis via a phone or computer. The person is also required to check in when he or she is about to venture out, such as for a stroll outside, otherwise you are alerted by phone, text message or email. What's more, POM4U allows you to create groups of family members and friends so that videos, photos and information can be shared in a social network-style way.
