With advances in technology and science, life expectancy is increasing, but most of the elders must take care of themselves or live in assisted home. Between 2015 and 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau predicts that the population adult aged 65 to 84 will grow to 89%; meanwhile, the number of adult 85 and older are expected to more than triple and about 11 million people age sixty-five and older are predicted to live alone, which is almost a third of the American population. They may have problems to receive essential medications because they are unable to drive or do not have access to public transportations. The FlyMed Pharmacy will assist the elderly by providing home delivery services such as emergency or maintenance medications. Consultations and advice will be provided through a mobile app, DeliverMyMed.
