Just a year ago, I devoted two successive Observations columns to a couple of companies that were targeted hard-copy devices towards applications facilitating communications between extended families, with a special emphasis on the elderly population and their needs. (see "Observations: Hard Copy Communications for Families").
This morning Presto and Doctor Marion of Elder Health Resources of America have announced two new iPhone apps, Elder911 and Elder411. (See "Why Presto and Doctor Marion developed 'Elder Apps' for iPhone"). (And thanks to Presto CEO Peter Radsliff for his LinkedIn note on the announcement.)
