Inspired by Mark Hager's article, "If I Were So Brave: America Isn’t Ready for Aging Boomer Crisis": During my Hurricane Sandy experience, I and others were helping elderly and disabled folks stuck at the tops of their buildings. We were so upset that the big agencies like FEMA and Red Cross were completely siloed and ineffective in their approach to these needs.
And there was no statistical information to spread the word and get additional help. Though Palantir was on the ground building a database to do this, it wasn't immediately helpful as they were just getting started.
What if everyone were on the same page for the silver tsunami (and Hurricane Sandy's to come)? What systems can we put in place to make it easy for us to work together?
We want to align communities so in a disaster, we can easily serve seniors and vulnerable folks to assist the organizations that weren't aligned during Sandy.
We are in chats with large government and private organizations to build an impact study to develop and demonstrate Peakfoqus' smart watch and safety communication system with various infrastructures, so we can show possibilities for ways to keep seniors, and other vulnerable folks, healthy and safe.
We would love to talk this through with individuals and communities who have a moment for a phone call, Skype or in-person meetup sometime soon.
