Love it:-)

Dear Anthony, I'm excited to know about this resource. It's a wealth of knowledge for both formal and informal caregivers! Considering that financial concerns are front and center for families navigating dementia, I can imagine offering a deal to informal caregivers, such as an X-amount of videos for free, then tiered memberships. Paid viewing of course for formal caregivers! Also, maybe you could add snippets of the video's so people could see if they wish to purchase -much like how iTunes allows you to listen to part of a song before purchasing. Maybe there's opportunity to collaborate at some point (www.presencecareproject.com, OpenIdeo proposal Mindfulness Based Dementia Care Online). Congratulations and good luck!

Love this idea! This is one of the most pressing needs that caregivers experience! Professional caregivers are often cost-prohibitive.. I wonder if you could add some kind of basic dementia training, so people who sign up as volunteers come into the care situation with at least a basic skill set. Also, a place to list some of the person's favorite activities, daily schedule, etc?
Check out our OpenIdeo proposal (Mindfulness Based Dementia Care Online) for online training..maybe there's potential for collaboration?
