FindMeFriends: Concept for a social app for older adults

Loneliness is a problem faced by a lot of members of the aging community, regardless of whether they live alone or in care homes. They require companionship and increased social interaction to keep mentally and physically active. This is also true for those living with dementia, as the disease affects their speech and memory, making it hard to maintain relationships. 

FindMeFriends is an app that will help achieve just that. Designed specifically for older adults, the app can help people find new friends, groups and events to take part in, based on their interests.
