Project Description

This project is developing an open web-site, called Share'N'Care, to provide creative guidance to residential and domiciliary carers who are caring for older people with dementia. The web-site has been developed on top of natural language parsing and inspiration-based software search technologies developed in the EU-funded project, and retrieves information about good care practices shared by care practitioners in order to guide carers to create new and valuable care actions and plans for different situations. Creativity support is also offered to carers through guidance to implement best care practices according to different published models of older person care.

The project is being piloted in the county of Suffolk, in collaboration with the Suffolk Brokerage (
