The Cafe of Mistaken Orders
"Orange Day SENGAWA" is a café that opens once a month in Sengawa, Tokyo, also known as the Café of Mistaken Orders. We launched the Orange Day SENGAWA with families that have loved ones suffering from dementia to give dementia patients opportunities to play an active role in society and to help the local community embrace dementia. The café is run by volunteers who strive to create a community where you can thrive in despite dementia and those that are trying to gain better understanding of dementia.
