We’re co-creating a crowdsourced platform for collaborative, bottom up research. The goal is to develop a P2P Caregiver Support System for professional & family caregivers in partnership with dementia patients, families, and communities. We see senior living communities and care facilities as equal partners in this approach to education, training, & culture change.
The parameters we intend to begin with are:
1. Storytelling with patients and caregivers as partners for greater family involvement;
2. Stress reduction techniques to nurture both patients and Care Partners;
3. Improve community involvement in facilities with greater volunteer recruitment to demonstrate how to produce permanent culture change.
