The challenge

Carers and nursing staff struggle to promptly reach people with dementia due to time constraints and a lack of suitable tools for engagement. We are looking for a solution that helps us to provide quick and easy access to people with dementia.

 

The problem we are facing

It is difficult for carers and nursing staff to quickly find access to people with dementia in the stressful day-to-day care routine. There is a lack of time and suitable activation tools to reach them. This is why carers often feel stressed by people with dementia in their day-to-day work and they in turn often wander around in the corridors.

 

Possible Future

We need a simple tool that is quick to use and easy to operate. it should help us to provide quick and easy access to people with dementia. Furthermore, it should give people with dementia nice moments, a time when they are not confused and are happy.
