We started with the provocation: How might we flip the image of caretaking?
CARE A VAN is our prototype response to the question.
It is a self-driving, welcome wagon with drone attachments and a Death Clown leading the way. Think Rose Parade Floats, Bread and Puppet Theatre, Farmer's Market mobile display arriving at your doorstep. Filled with energy boosters for walking the noble caretaker's path, Care-A-Van brings local healthy life and dementia care, vendor swag to a caretaker's doorstep. Swag includes a burner cell phone to operate the drone for monthly self and dementia care deliveries. It also includes a flashdrive and handbook filled with ways to access new financial models and senior community housing suggestions in your immediate community. Each van gives away free copies of the up to date manual on memory care: “Dementia for Dummies, Get it Before You Forget It.”
