Ideas

In the Ideas phase, we called a global community to submit current projects or proposals focused on the Challenge topic: How might we better support family caregivers as they care for a loved one with dementia?

We used insights and experiences from the Research Phase – called Opportunity Areas – to create new innovations that push the boundaries of existing caregiving tools and services. 

Thank you to all the innovators who contributed to this generative process!

Read the Challenge Brief and the Evaluation Criteria for more context on our Challenge topic and goals.

Want more resources? Check out the Journey Map from AgingWell Hub at Georgetown University and our Caregiver Personas.

Check out our current Phase to keep up with the action.
