“Respite that fits our needs”: Learning from a Day Care Service Defined by Spouse Caregivers to Design a Social Support Platform
ACM CSCW Workshop on Collaboration and Coordination in the Context of Informal Care (CCCIC 2014)
This paper reports on a local day care service initiated by spouse caregivers: the Bright Spell. On the framework of the TOPIC project we are interested in the social support informal carers find in their daily life. On the basis of our observation of a journey at the Bright Spell and from interviews with three participants couples of this day care service, we propose and discuss several insights for the design of online social support applications.
