Solution

HelpingHand is a advisor service, where caregiver using easy to use interface can find neccesary information about his specyfic problem. HelpingHand is one place to go, some times it is a connection to others which have similar problems, sometimes it is map service helping finding right shop and sometimes it can be intelligent search engine for the many specialized forums on the web. Internet and smartphones aren’t so easy to use by people age 50 and above, who often become caregivers of their parents or older family. Thats it is important to ease the experience. I would like the system to answer questions like: „Where can I buy dipers for adults?” or more complicated: „I have a back-ake when I’m lifting my father, how to lift him properly?”. The service will use ChatBot interface, which is more human friendly than menus, finger swiping, searching by keywords. This way it can fluidly guide the caregiver through his problems (from registration to more complex problems). Based on the conversation history the chatbot will analize the caregiver situation and it is possible to suggest things which the caregiver isn’t aware of. The service could be integrated also with new versions of Skype where first simple beta chatbots are present. Thanks to deep learning algorythms it could search forums of communities gathered around certain problem and give answers to the caregiver in very intuitive way, as an almost human-like reply.

Describe a caregiver situation that you were/are involved in.

Couple of years ago my mother together with my aunt were caring for my grandfather suffering from dementia. At the begining it was very stressful situation, also because of lack of knowledge. I remember that they were searching through internet, bookstores asking for information at the clinic. Of course they could find information but it was very time consuming and it reminded more of journey into the unknown.
