社企The Project Futurus舉辦的流動五感大茶樓活動,為腦退化(認知障礙症)長者提供五感飲茶體驗的活動詳情。

Program Introduction

Food is essential to human life. It is not only a basic necessity but also deeply ingrained in our traditions - often as an integral part of our social gatherings connecting people with society.

“Sensory Restaurant on Wheels™” is a program that aims to recreate a nostalgic and immersive Chinese dim sum experience for elders living with dementia to improve elders’ appetite, provide cognitive stimulation of the five senses and provide a joyful, interactive experience.

The 12-month community project is sponsored by The Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) and supported by Impact Incubator from June 2021 to May 2022.

Program Impact (Ongoing)

The Program has so far hosted 18 sessions of immersive dim sum workshops for over 330 elders living at elderly homes and day-care centers through our unique sensory-based yum cha experience. The events are designed based on the five senses – sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing. Fresh dim sum with a variety of texture options are provided fresh on-site.

Impact (As of April 1, 2022):

  • Benefitted 330+ elderly through organising 18 events at elderly homes/centres

  • Trained and employed 4 staff aged 50 or above as event assistants

  • Developed 10 soft meal dim sum items

  • Produced 12 videos related to dementia
