SEOUL, South Korea, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The City of Seoul, the Community Chest of Seoul, Korea Telecom (KT), MacroEye and Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), through its Wireless Reach(TM) initiative, today announced the expansion of a project that provides mobile devices, services and applications through the "Seoul Family Helper" program. This project supplies mobile handsets and devices to caregivers and senior citizens in order to provide healthcare related support. The pilot project received positive evaluations from participants and is now being adopted by the City of Seoul as one of its budgeted welfare services in 2010. The project is being expanded from the original pilot of 40 caregivers and 400 elderly participants to 500 caregivers and 5,000 participants.

  • Direct Access: Devices are programmed for direct dialing to the Seoul Family Helper helpline. By pushing one button, the participant is automatically connected to the center's helpline.
  • Remote Functionality: Services that enable helpers to establish personalized communica
