Join the Caregiving for Dementia Challenge and collaborate with a global community to build innovative solutions that better prepare caregivers to address the unique and progressive challenges of Dementia. We want to improve resiliency of family caregivers by providing them with new tools, environments, and campaigns that address these challenges. Working with AARP Services, Inc. and UnitedHealthcare, the Challenge is run on OpenIDEO, an open innovation platform that enables people everywhere to use IDEO’s design thinking methodology. Check it out & share your idea by November 8. #CareForDementia
With the announcement of Top Ideas, there will be recognition of ideas that best represent the categories below:
Most Viable. A solution with greatest market viability. This may mean the idea is ready to go to market, either as-is or with targeted enhancements. The idea recognized as Most Viable will receive $25,000.
Most Promising. This recognition is all about potential for impact. This idea might not be ready for the market but it shows promise in significantly impacting the quality of care for adults with early to mid-stage dementia, and improving the experience and support for caregivers. The idea recognized as Most Promising will receive $15,000.
As always, everyone in the Challenge is encouraged to take ideas forward and implement them within their own communities. OpenIDEO Challenges strive to be a place where good ideas gain momentum – both from the community and from sponsors and partners.
