A mobile communications device for providing proximity-based assistance includes a communications interface, a processor, and a memory that is configured to store instructions thereon that cause a processor to register, at a first time, a user of the mobile device as needing a type of assistance. The instructions also cause the processor to broadcast, at a second time, a request for assistance. The request includes the type of assistance needed. The request is broadcast to helper devices that are within a predetermined proximity of the user. Each of the helper devices is associated with a corresponding user that is registered to assist with the particular type of assistance needed. The instructions cause the processor to receive an indication from a helper device that the corresponding user has accepted the help request, determine that the corresponding user has assisted the user, and notify staff that the user has been assisted.
