Living Well with Mild Cognitive Impairment

Co-design

In this project, researchers set out to explore the day-to-day experience of mild cognitive impairment (MCI)—a diagnosis associated with a higher risk of dementia in adults over the age of 65. The aim of this research was to find out which strategies and supports people found most helpful for managing cognitive changes, while identifying specific needs and concerns that could be met through the design of online resource. A co-design methodology was chosen to ensure that the design of the resource would meet user needs and requirements. This included a co-design workshop and design sessions at participant’s homes. This approach has helped inform decision-making through the design process, particularly around language-use and the prioritisation of resource content and features.
