We invited mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandmothers, grandfathers, designers, refiners, nurses, pharmacists to work together, in community, and we asked them to share their experience, creativity and ingenuity to come up with the next adaption of the Pill Pouch.
We started by sharing stories of health stress and success. We then used these to together define the opportunities we are working toward.
Two themes emerged.
- A way to talk about taboo topics with family (aging, death, living situation, driving, advance directives, making decisions, etc.)
- Getting control and changing our relationship to medication
Our journey has begun, in community, with individuals sharing their gifts and experiences together to create something new. Now that we embarked on this journey we can't wait to experience what emerges.
