Daily care of Alzheimer patient is a daunting task for formal and informal caregivers that are at risk of exhaustion. The constant evolution of the illness requires to adapt constantly his strategy do deal with the changing behaviour. Although educational material exist, none is fully adapted to the specificity of each situation. With the POSTHCARD platform we will engage caregivers in the learning of adapted behaviours for a large range of situations that they encounter in their daily life. Thanks to POSTHCARD, the reduction of burden associated to home-care will allow Alzheimer patients to stay longer at home.
