Who is your idea designed for and how does it better support family caregivers as they care for a loved one with dementia?

The idea is designed for the care givers/ partners. It better supports family care givers by equipping them with proper basic knowledge and skills on how to cater for the loved ones with dementia.

This  form of specialized training to the care givers to care for their loved ones with dementia is through acquiring more knowledge on how to properly feed them, bath them, loving them, counselling them as they suffer things like depression, aggressiveness, stress etc. inorder to live longer than they would have lived minus care givers. 

The training is to be free and easily made accessible for the care givers.

ICPDY will therefore identify care givers in the communities and then provide them with adequate training to effectively manage and care for their loved ones.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Questionnaires (to be initially prepared and distributed to participants) will be used to collect feedback inorder to establish the level and impact of the organization's services to provide future guidance for idea development as i look forward to yielding more better results..

What skills, input, or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

Of course feedback and guidance from OpenIDEO community in form of comments posted will help in building / refining my idea. Also support inform of collaboration with others would be helpful in refining my idea.
