  1. 1. GiFT Sam Finnigan Sebastian Mellor Mary Galvin Conor Linehan
  2. 2. There is a need for a simple way to send a report of activities that took place in day centre home to carers • service providers would like to show carers that interesting stuff has happened at day care, • carers would like to have that info
  3. 3. An observed interaction in Mary Galvins research. The carer was unaware that her husbands interests had changed, which undermined a potentially valuable interaction: “Ann: How was your day, John? John: Great! I had two dinners. I was dancing, I was dancing all day! Researcher: What type of music do you like to dance to, John? Ann: Oh, he doesn’t like music anymore.” John sat back and pretended to be asleep and Ann remained sitting in silence.
  4. 4. Aims: 1) bridging gap between professional caregiving and family caregiving 2) provoking further insight for care givers into often changing behaviour and interests of person with dementia 3) supporting the relationship of care - promoting shared activity rather than reminiscence
  5. 5. Design: Audio recording by care
 worker at day centre via 
 smartphone application.
 
 Record interactions they
 already have with people No new work required of
 care worker - fits into 
 existing activities
  6. 6. Design: Internet-enabled short 
 range radio transmitter
 streams saved audio 
 from server
 
 People can tune in to
 this on their existing radio No new technology 
 or technical knowledge
 required
  7. 7. GiFT is intended to bridge the gap between professional caregiving and family caregiving, improving the experience for people with dementia, caregivers and service providers. GiFT supports the relationship of care through providing a shared activity, and through provoking insight - caregivers are supported in becoming more aware of the current abilities, interests and activities of their family member, whose behavior may be in transition.
