Share your story with us – The EXPLORE APP

A meal can make or break a day in a Residential Aged Care Home. Using the Lantern Project's EXPLORE App, powered by SenseMaker, we are able to quickly capture and collate participant's food memories with the purpose to identify key priorities in terms of improving the aged care dining experience.

About the Explore Study

The EXPLORE App has been developed as a tool to be used during the Explore Study by Cherie Hugo as part of her PhD at Bond University for The Lantern Project.

The EXPLORE App asks you to share a food memory around a food experience and then answer a few questions about this memory.

The stories collected during this study will help to shape strategies to improve the enjoyment of food in residential aged care facilities. Your participation in the Explore Study is designed to inform priorities for our larger project - The Lantern Project - which aims to improve resident's quality of life through great food.

By completing this survey, you are consenting for your anonymous information to be used with that of others in the production of reports to inform future strategies in The Lantern Project to further improve the joy of food for residents in residential aged care homes.
