Creative Ageing R and D Project

Our vision is to create a platform that enables new digital tools to be used by individuals, carers and care staff to build richer and more personalised care plans for older people living with Dementia (both within the community and within residential care): We want to create a digital continuing biographies platform, ‘Life Streams’.

This vision has developed out of our work in residential care settings, which led us to approach The Baring Foundation for some small research and development funding.

This funding has enabled us to develop a working prototype Life Streams site, which we are currently testing with a range of our target users (including individuals and carers groups, and health and social professionals).
