IKEA visits Older Generations at Augustana Care to Learn More about their Needs

This past winter, representatives from the local IKEA Twin Cities store visited residents at Augustana Apartments in Minneapolis and Augustana Regent in Burnsville to learn more about their needs. The visits are helping the furniture giant learn more about the challenges older adults face when they move to communities like Augustana Care.

The importance of listening to older generations cannot be overstated, as the number of older adults is growing rapidly nationwide and in Minnesota. Augustana Care has advocated for older generations for years because their time, talents and experience are valuable to us all. We are thrilled that IKEA asked residents what they want and is now working to give it to them.
