With her product "MIND" Kirstine Gjerstad Mackeprang focuses on the emotions that families of people with dementia go through and on retention of the good memories about the patient's 'old self' with the purpose of helping the families and strengthen family unity. 'MIND' consists of three parts: a conversation kick starter/video that establishes a common starting point for a conversation.

A conversation card that helps facilitate the difficult conversations with family and friends, so one gets to talk about the important issues and challenges one faces. Finally the designer has developed a prototype of an app that acts as a memorial service, which makes it easier to gather the good memories in a difficult time.
