Problem Statement: Because of either physical, cognitive or sensory deficits, elderly individuals require assistance to perform instrumental activities of daily living, which include cleaning, cooking, finances, using a telephone, taking their medications, or traveling, making them less independent.

Plan:
- Make a questionnaire about the use of smart phones and what troubles they have.
- We want to find out the most common IADL that the targeted population is having trouble -> convert to need statement
- Research online what is the most common deficits that occur in the elderly population.
