Abstract
Our research aims at informing the design of accessible and useful solutions to alleviate stress of daily caregiving tasks done by spousal caregivers of Alzheimer’s disease. For so doing, we have conducted a qualitative study, observing and analyzing the different solutions that are offered by a healthcare network in the Aube region (North-East of France). We discuss the key factors that we have identified for building a support network that respects the preferences and values of family and in particular spousal caregivers while offering training and assistance needed to maintain the caregiving situation.
