" . . . So starting this week, Amazing Joe’s will become dementia-friendly for one Sunday afternoon a month, WISH-TV of Indianapolis reports. Customers with dementia and their dining companions will be seated in a quieter back room, close to the kitchen and its smells, and have the option of ordering from a special limited menu with pictures.
Amazing Joe’s developed the concept in partnership with Thrive Alliance, a state-run aging agency in central Indiana. Sue Lamborn, Thrive Alliance’s outreach manager, explained to WISH-TV that it’s important for dementia patients to be able to do things they enjoy and live in the moment. . . "
