Campaign for Dementia Friendly Restaurants

March 29, 2013

There is a nascent movement in Britain for restaurants to have a logo indicting that they are “Dementia Aware.”  With their population growing older, the idea is for education of staff so they are more receptive and, perhaps, a bit kindler and gentler, toward customers experiencing memory loss and confusion.

Not a bad idea.  As the son of someone who suffered from dementia for many years, I can say that there is definitely a right way and a wrong way to communicate with someone who suffers from this disease.  Making everyone more understanding of the needs of  the elder population can only be a plus.   See more at this link.
