Hello everyone, From just joining the Alzheimer's Society I am beginning to get to grips with the posting of threads so I hope this works. From looking through the forums and blogs I see a lot of previous students like me who have asked some similar questions, however i will explain below. I am a Design and Innovation student , and I am coming to my final year of my undergraduate degree. I have always been interested in the design of medical and health industries and whenever I have the opportunity to pick my projects , I always select ones that I am greatly interested in improving. This time, for my final project I have taken an interest in how Dementia suffers lives can be improved in their home or in the care home. I have the following vision : I'd like to explore improving the patient and carer relationship. My general thought is to try and improve the social interaction between the patient and carer and in turn introduce a joint responsibility of carrying out a task. Does anyone have any ideas what these tasks could be? What could be improved from the patient and carer relationship through a tangible/interactive product? Could keeping an active patient (Encourage movement/exercise) improve social interaction? Overall, if we can improve the residents independence, this will free up carer time and make room for a more social and interaction experience. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated and I am looking forward to hearing any other take on this vision.
