摘要

The success in medical and multidisciplinary research has resulted in the longevity in human age. Longevity in human age has caused an increase in the elderly population, and this condition becomes a new phenomenon. The scientific and medical research focusing on the elderly becomes one of the biggest concerns, and cross-disciplinary cooperation to promote the health of the elderly is a global issue. However, many factors are affecting the physical and mental health of the elderly. The reduction in a social circle after retirement is a common problem for the elderly. Smaller social circle makes the elderly isolate and can cause loneliness. In order to reduce the problem, this study proposed a smartphone application called PiChat. This application manages to pair similar photos uploaded to help the elderly found new acquaintance and guidance of the conversation topic to begin. However, emphasizing the ease of use and considering the deterioration of the visual ability of the elderly, this application will lead the elderly to create a new social circle gradually. The preliminary test showed that this application is feasible to anticipate social circle reduction for the baby boomer’s elderly.
