Creative designs and solutions to help tackle a mental health condition among the aging population.

One in three people will experience some form of dementia before they reach the age of 65. The medical condition affects the mental function and can result in memory loss, poor motor skills, and an inability to communicate. The UK's Design Council launched a 12-month Design Challenge that asked the design community to come up with products and services that address this issue.

Recently, five ideas have been selected and each one explained via a short film produced by Why Not Associates. These ideas will also be receiving funding from the Design Council to further develop the concept.
