Optimizing NIA’s Eureka Prize Competition Topic


Caregiving can be a difficult change in the lives of those who care for loved ones. Transitions is a concept that would aid dementia/Alzheimer's caregivers, and any other caregivers with family members facing a debilitating health diagnosis, in their journey by providing an inclusive space to find tools, resources and information. An individualized plan would be created for each caregiver based on their current needs. The caregiver would also be connected with a support group to give and receive feedback throughout his/her journey. The site would provide tools and resources ranging from symptom details, assisted living facilities, advanced directives, estate planning, etc. Transitions would provide the solution to the unknown while families progress through the caregiving journey.
