Dementia is a growing problem, affecting millions of Canadians. As dementia progresses, it’s very common for the circle of care to grow as needs do. But it can take weeks for caregivers to learn about a person’s care preferences. Small details matter in alleviating agitated behaviour. Ipseity allows families to create individual care profiles specifically tailored to a person’s care preferences.

Description

Dementia is a growing problem, affecting millions of Canadians. As dementia progresses, it’s very common for the circle of care to grow as needs do. But it can take weeks for caregivers to learn about a person’s care preferences. Small details matter in alleviating agitated behaviour. Ipseity allows families to create individual care profiles specifically tailored to a person’s care preferences. This includes routines, activities of daily living, food preferences, as well as a person’s life story and hobbies. Families can share access to the digital profile with a care team, as well as easily update and maintain the profile over time.

 

Judge's Comments

Having a mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s, I know first-hand the challenges of providing consistent care. This is such a simple and powerful solution to a very real problem. I could use this today and know that it would be very helpful to my mother’s team of caregivers. Great work!
