Hi Kate

Thanks for sharing this feedback with us, we're most likely not going to go with this idea because we have another group idea Cane Day [UPDATED] . Thank you for the feedback, we're still in the game with another idea...


Sheba commented on One TV Show which is redefining aging for everyone.

Hi Kate,
I think media can help shape the perceptions of "independence" as it relates to the elderly. Perhaps if we presented this as more of a part of life than something to be ashamed of, we can actually tackle it as a source of problem . This is one of the topics I will be writing on in the ideation, public media campaigns. Thanks for responding


Sheba commented on K just bought a medical alert device

I think a lot of medical alert devices need to be updated and possibly iterated to continue addressing the needs of the elderly. A lot of these designs seem to function on the idea that elderly people are all the same, and their needs and stagnant which isn't true. Great write-up!
