In the living lab we collect good ideas from demented people and their carers. Based on these ideas we assist and start up initiatives to develop new services and product. We work together with formal and informal carers and people with dementia in a network of research institutes, universities, other health care organisations, medical centres, designers and mulitmedia experts of the creative industry, all kind of companies and local municipalities.
People with dementia, caregivers, professionals, students can sign up to give input during the processes of development and implementation. They can choose the way they prefer to share their knowledge and experiences. They can fill in questionnaires, particpate in a focusgroup or/ and try out new prototypes in their own home situation.
This model is developed by ZorgtechnoService©, one of the initiators and a partner of the living lab Hart of Brabant
