Thank you to Ana Florescu who posted Dementia Citizens platform for highlighting this blog post - Dementia Citizens Learnings. Included in this blog post was Uninvited Guests created by Superflux and is hosted on Vimeo.

This 4-minute long video highlights how easy it is to circumnavigate benevolent technology and is something to think about when you think of the limits of some digital solutions and products. 

Find out more about the learnings from the Dementia Citizens project in the Dementia Citizens Learnings Blog post on the Ctrl Group website. 

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

How might we develop digital solutions that have a clear benefit for the caregiver and care-recipient and prove themselves early on?
