COVID-19
Together we care!

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak we are doing our part, because we believe healthcare concerns all. Therefore it requires the contribution of all humans as a collectivity. Since the last week we have been collecting useful solutions, stories, and information to help you navigate and orient yourselves.

Let’s stay all safe, healthy digitally distributed!

A careable is an object that embodies the capacity to take care of someone.

To care means to be concerned and feel affection, being able expresses the possibility and capability of doing something. Caregivers and care-receivers team up with people who have technical and design skills to solve real needs.

We are all different than why care for everyone the same?

Each disability, both physical or cognitive, permanent or temporary, should be faced with solutions that address relevant problems, contain costs and, nonetheless, care about aesthetics.

Careables.org is an open and inclusive platform for people to find, share and actively co-create healthcare solutions together, according to your needs, your skills, your interests.

We develop and collect resources that are relevant to learn more about principles and practices to innovate healthcare and to contribute significantly in careables dissemination and distribution.
