47.5 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, with 9.9 million new cases every year. Many people would think that those affected will struggle to find work or do the basics. Recently, a pop-up restaurant opened in Tokyo which only operated for three days. This restaurant definitely changed the public's perceptions of people living with dementia and Alzheimer's. The Restaurant of Order Mistakes, which opened in early June, was staffed with people suffering from these disorders.  

Six smiling waitresses took orders and served food to customers even though they knew they might not get what they asked for. Every waitress suffers from either  dementia or Alzheimer's, hence the restaurant's name. A waitress who used to work in a school decided to take part as she was used to cooking for children and thought she could do it. But of course the day wasn't without mistakes.

Mizuho Kudo, an attendee at the event, tweeted that when she ordered a hamburger, she was brought gyoza dumplings from the kitchen instead. But she noted that everything was  fun and with a smile, nevertheless the food was enjoyable. The concept was developed by like-minded people from the television, advertising and hospitality industries. For her, it's a non-profit project set up by professionals to show that people with dementia or Alzheimer's are still capable of more than we think. 

After this first success, the organisers are planning  another event for World Alzheimer's Day on September 21st.
