Today’s fast life is very demanding, we have our demands for faster work, faster tech, better hangout spots and great food. In this fast moving life we often tend to overlook the needs of our older family members, some of us might even have a differently-abled gem in your family; just like us they too deserve a faster and efficient service that caters to their special needs. To be very honest, it is our own social responsibility to make their lives enjoyable and stress-free just like we try to do with ours.
Billionables is a newly launched app that does exactly the same- now you don’t have to actually go to a restaurant to check if it will be convenient for your handicap friend or family members. We often tend to go for ‘take-aways’ for our old parents and grandparents just because we think that being in the restaurant might be a challenge- but it’s time to say goodbye to these worries. Now your handicap, differently-abled or old friends and family members can hangout with you and together you can have a great time. All you have to do is find the perfect spot with this app according to your needs and location. You can choose with respect to your choice and you will also have reviews that will help you.
