Majority of older adults will grieve this holiday season and the Coping with Grief app is a 24/7 companion that will be available to over 60% of them that own smartphones
New York, NY (PRUnderground) December 20th, 2019
The new free all-in-one “Coping with Grief” mobile app was designed and developed by a team of volunteers from the non-profit My Grief Angels. The app is the second mobile app launched by the online grief support nonprofit after their first award winning app launched in 2015.
As of today, the newly launched app is already #71 in Amazon Best Seller in Self Improvement – Top 100 Free Apps list.
According to Statista, over 3 billion people, approximately 43% of the world population, have smartphones in 2019. In the United States alone, a recent Pew Research Center study found that the share of Americans who own smartphones is 81% and the smartphone penetration among adults 50 – 64 is 79% and 53% in adults 65+.
This holiday season in the United States alone:
Smartphones’ mobile apps provide the largest global access for free grief support apps like My Grief Angels’ “Coping with Grief” to reach grieving populations worldwide and are uniquely effective in reaching older adults in the United States, a particularly vulnerable grieving population during the Holidays.
In a 2.5 year period, one study found that over 70% of older adults experience bereavement from the loss of spouse, siblings, relatives and friends, and during the holiday season – those losses become more visible.
In adidtiton to the 15 grief information, workplace, grief tech, education, videos, resources and other tools featured in the new app – the mobile app’s soothing, simple and elegant black and white visual design style was inspired by a comment from a user of the My Grief Angels online site grieving the loss of her sister and father:
“Since Their Death, My Holidays are in Black and White”
Carmen Cid, Teacher
The objective of the new app’s free, no fee, and no monthly subscriptions revenue model is to make it available 24/7 to anyone anywhere with smartphone access, and regardless of their income level.
