Summer 2009: The Tovertafel’s story begins

with a conversation between designer Hester Le Riche an prof. dr. Erik Scherder, a conversation about their shared passion to improve the quality of life for older people with dementia. Erik talks about the passivity common in this group and the disastrous consequences this has for their health. “Can’t you come up with something to get these older people with dementia to move more?” Erik asks Hester. Her answer? “Yes!”
