We have all done it: Parked our car and forgotten where it is. Luckily, there are now apps to help you pinpoint the location of your car. Some apps will also alert you to locations of your friends if they use the same app. Assisting you in finding a parking space is another feature available on many apps. Some  will guide you to free or paid parking garages,  and some have split screen capabilities so you can compare parking rates. Some will even remind you to fill up your car with gas. With these apps, there’s  no need to worry that your ice cream is melting or  that you’ll never see your car again after a concert.

The people who create apps know that seniors are an entirely different demographic that may be interested in apps that other groups are not. Many apps are free and others only charge a minimal one-time fee to download. McHARRIE LIFE SENIOR COMMUNITY offers a full continuum of healthcare programs and services that will help residents maintain their independence and dignity even as their needs change. Schedule a tour of our senior community at 7740 Meigs Road, Baldwinsville, by calling (315) 638-2521 today.

P.S. The average American spends 300 hours a year in the car, so it only makes sense to use technology to enhance your driving experience.
