There is a need for a simple way to send a report
of activities that took place in day centre home to
• service providers would like to show carers that
interesting stuff has happened at day care,
• carers would like to have that info
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,
Ann: Oh, he doesn’t like music anymore.”
John sat back and pretended to be asleep and Ann
remained sitting in silence.

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.
