Dutch dementia innovation, the Tovertafel, has been selected to showcase at the Dutch Royal State Visit on Wednesday, 24th October to celebrate its work in improving the quality of life for people with cognitive challenges.

His Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima of The Netherlands will be joined by the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Lord Mayor of the City of London, Mr. Charles Bowman, where they will learn how the Tovertafel games break through apathy by stimulating both physical and cognitive activity and encouraging social interaction. Moreover, the Tovertafel creates treasured moments with family members and carers.

The event showcases the benefits of the relationship between the Dutch and the UK in helping solve societal challenges in modern mobility, ageing and sustainable production.

Netherlands based Active Cues brings the Tovertafel to care homes and communities across the UK and Ireland. The Tovertafel has now been installed in over 2,000 care services across Europe, with 300 of those in the UK and Ireland.

Hester Le Riche, CEO & Founder of Active Cues, the company behind the Tovertafel, said ahead of the event, “We are honoured to showcase the Tovertafel alongside other innovative Dutch technology during the Dutch Royal State Visit. We are driven by our mission to create 10 million moments of happiness across the globe, and we are proud to represent the relationship between the Netherlands and the UK in tackling ageing challenges and promoting healthy ageing.”
