This is so well thought out! Interestingly my Grandmother just got an iPhone 5, and has been struggling to use it, despite its intuitive user-interface. I wonder how making the app accessible and usable would work for a senior demographic? Bridging the technology gap would be a major challenge I think. Maybe a training period during the initial home-care visits, where each day a new "app-skill" is learned could build user confidence and retention!
Agreed. This is a wicked idea. Super simple, but could have a major impact and create major opportunities. Targeting empathy and understanding is such a natural place to begin with this challenge. I can imagine taking initiative on creating a button would begin in arts-focused communities/ demographics. For some it might be a little overwhelming imaging how you even go about making one. Maybe a super-visual "how-to" on a website? I can totally see this taking off on various forms of social media as well, as people post awesome portraits with their buttons.
