IKEA, Queen of Sweden working to help people with dementia

World

(WIVB) — IKEA is teaming up with the Queen of Sweden to design homes for people with dementia.

Some touches include eliminating mirrors and dark-colored floors in the bathroom, which could scare or confuse people.

Kitchen appliances are fitted with simple knobs, rather than digital controls.

It’s thought that the new mass-produced homes will help countries deal with costs associated with aging populations.
