Dutch innovation with retirement homes and dementia

You do have to give The Netherlands credit for being one few countries in the world who are not afraid of trying new innovative ways with societal issues such as an aging population. You do have to admire their respect for quality of life at any age.

The following articles show how they are trying certain pilot projects with retirement homes and students and dealing with dementia. It will also be interesting how the internet and technology get used in these environments as well. If successful, will countries like Canada follow suit?
