    Our Live Challenge Question

If there was one thing we could invent to give more space and independence to the lives of the carer, and in so doing benefit the person being cared for, what would that be?

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 want to share two films with you. 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 are collaborating with AXA PPP and the best technology-led ideas will be put forward for consideration in AXA PPP Health Tech and Age Awards, 2017.

Login to our ideas lab, The Age of Action, to submit your idea or insight, tell your story, collaborate with others and get your idea turned into reality.
