ABSTRACT:

This report is a summary of the work done by a group of students (team AiDoc ) at Openlab Stockholm solving a challenge presented by the City of Stockholm in collaboration with Stureby Nursing Home and Reality Lab. The challenge involved coming up with alternative solutions that would improve social documentation in elderly care through two iterations of the Design Thinking process. The report starts by describing the process of gathering insights from observations and interaction with the users in order to identify their actual needs. The original challenge is then reformulated based on the new points of views. Various concepts are generated during the ideate – phase and are thereafter brought into the prototyping phase and tested. The second part of the report describes how the final concept is selected and fine – tuned to form what is now Life Storybook, a re-envisioned social documentation system that would overcome the challenges of the previous one through the use of aiding tools; and introduces new, comprehensive and innovative ways of documenting different aspects of the residents’ daily lives in nursing homes.
