Sensory Restaurant on Wheels
2021 - 2022
Program Introduction (2021 - 2022)
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 (Completed)
The Program hosted 23 sessions of immersive dim sum workshops for over 414 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 Sept 1, 2022):
Benefitted 414+ elderly through organising 23 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
