CuraGuard is an app that allows the elderly to remain independent by giving them instant access to friends and relatives to help them with emergencies or everyday tasks. Now, creator Lars Ole Mathisen has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise production funds for this app.
Oslo, Norway -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2015 -- Senior citizens often need help carrying out daily tasks or overcoming occasional challenges in their lives. With the help of the new CuraGuard app, creator Lars Ole Mathisen hopes to enable the elderly to stay longer in their own homes and receive a helping hand from friends, neighbors and family. CuraGuard enables seniors to live an independent life with support from their family and friends.
Derived from the Latin word cura which means "care," CuraGuard is designed to allow neighbors, friends and family to be able to make a difference in the lives of their older loved ones. The service utilizes Facebook to allow senior citizens to post tasks for which they need help, such as transportation to doctor's appointments, errands to the grocery store or other daily tasks. Helpers are notified via the app that is connected to the Facebook service.
Seniors may find that several people offer to help with any given tasks, in which case they can choose from a list of respondents. The job can be paid for through Facebook pay and make secure payments online. Helpers will also collect points in an ongoing game that also motivates them to get involved.
The Kickstarter campaign, located at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1923587988/curaguard, will raise funds for the production and distribution of CuraGuard through Facebook.

CuraGuard came up with this idea as we have a rapidly growing population of elderly people, who want to stay active and at home as long as possible, but still need help with small everyday tasks. The application provides a way to easily and effectively share the care of your loved ones with several of your family members, friends and neighbors. This new app enables seniors to live an independent life with support from family and friends, without the worry of having to ask them for help if they have other commitments at the time. It`s also a nice load off of the shoulders of the community when it comes to resource expenditure.
CuraGuard is an easy-to-use app that allows senior citizens to stay in their homes longer by giving them the ability to instantly connect with friends when they need help with any type of task. Now, the creator of CuraGuard has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to produce and distribute this app that allows the elderly to live meaningful and independent lives longer than they can without assistance.
