Thanks Molly for offering such great feedback. I agree that choosing the best sources to deliver the care bags is key. The subscription model is also something to consider, a good way to recognize a caregiver on a regular basis.
Look forward to following your idea and seeing how it develops. One of the key elements necessary to the success of my Respite Lite concept is finding a reliable network of caregivers, so glad to see your contribution in this challenge.
I agree that transportation is one of the biggest challenges in caregiving, especially in rural areas. Envoy America has been providing a door-to-door transportation service with extra features, like going grocery shopping with the elder. It's not dementia-specific, however. https://envoyamerica.com/
