Shift8 founders, John Ramsay and Mehdi Bedioui, recently talked to Gemma Evans about the story behind the Tovertafel “Magic Table”. They were joined by Rob Martin, Anchor’s Head of Care Quality, who has led the rollout of Tovertafel across a number of Anchor care homes. Also attending the Silk Court Care Home were school children from Bethnal Green, as part of the program Shift8 run to get younger generations into care homes and engaging with residents with dementia.

‚ÄúTovertafel is a brilliant Dutch invention that has only recently come to the UK. Here at Anchor, we are very pleased with the way the trials are going and from a care point of view, there is no doubt it helps those living with dementia.” – Rob Martin, Head of Care Quality at Anchor.¬†

Shift8 targeting 10 million happy moments

Part of John and Mehdi’s ambition for Shift8 is to make a difference to as many people living with dementia as possible. John says “we measure our success by the number of magical or happy moments the Tovertafel creates. We’re already delivering 50,000 happy moments each and every day around the world and we’re committed to hitting our goal of 10 million”.
