Outline

In Japan where one quarter of the population is of advanced age, one major issue is dementia. It is said to take 25 years before it is clearly identified. It needs to be recognized early in this long period and preventative measures taken in order to delay its progression. There is a space and design for this where a person’s current situation can be assessed in a relaxed manner. Where a person, family, members of the community and professional consultants can together find a solution. That place is as a cafe. Thanks to its drop-in casualness and bright design, it welcomed over 7,000 visitors last year. as a cafe offers a wide range of activities including partnerships with students, community meetings and art workshops.
