Hi Kate Rushton  and Joanna Spoth ,
My project would be the most promising because my product is still in its early stages of development, but will be built to help seniors and families of seniors stay up to date with the latest fall prevention programs, services and eventually technology. With so much information and resources to keep track of in the modern world, Roam makes finding senior wellness events, programs or services more convenient and accessible. Roam is a hub that acknowledges a senior's independence by keeping in mind of those who are visually and hearing impaired as well as the community's power in giving by encouraging donations and volunteer involvement. Roam will empower seniors to not only feel motivated with the community's contribution, but also discover useful events and services early on that may be beneficial to a senior's specific need.

Roam will be the go-to website where seniors can find information about existing fall prevention events, transportation, and products as well as stay up to date about upcoming events and latest technology. Roam will enable older adults to live their best possible life by informing them what is available in their community and educating them about the latest events and technology happening around the world.

Hi Joanna,
Thanks for your feedback - sorry I haven't been super active on here lately! For my second iteration (Rebalance) I couldn't really think of a way to aggregate community events and resources but in my third iteration (which I will soon post), seniors will be able to learn about community events through a real life person. I'll let you know once I've uploaded my updated idea :) Thanks again!
