The Health Design Lab collaborated with Taylor Hainstock and Dr. Denise Cloutier, from the Institute on Aging and Lifelong Health at the University of Victoria, to design a Caregiver Journey Brochure. This Caregiver Journey Brochure emerged from a collaborative research project between the University of Victoria and the Fraser Health region.
The tool is based on insights and experiences of caregivers helping a family member make the transition from home into a long-term care facility. The Health Design Lab’s role was to review the existing content and development the visual language and format of the brochure, for effective communication and printing.
The project evolved from a tri-fold brochure, to a multi-page journal for tracking in-depth insights. The visual language focuses on gender + racial neutrality, while acknowledging that each individual has their own ideas and thoughts about what a caregiver journey means to them.
