Our Previous Challenge
Title: Caring Across the Ages
Challenge launch: 7 November 2016
Completed: 13 January 2016
Maybe you’ve been a carer and have a great solution you want to share? Or maybe you are a technology company with an idea you want to get feedback on from carers or people being carer for? Perhaps you are a designer with an innovation you want to develop with carers? Or maybe you just want to share your personal experience and what you have learnt from them? Please join us in this challenge and share your solutions with our community!
For a bit of inspiration we created two films. The first one is an intimate and powerful film of a mother and her daughter, who looks after her 24/7 after a serious brain injury 2 years ago. In our second film this same carer fantasises about how technology could make the situation she and her mum find themselves in more positive, purposeful and happier.
For this challenge, we collaborated with AXA PPP and the best technology-led ideas were put forward for consideration in AXA PPP Health Tech and Age Awards, 2017. Well done to all who took part and helped create a really successful challenge with some great solutions which are now really beginning to take shape.
