Setting the table is one of those tasks which is low risk and yet engages with the mothering instinct, so strong in many women with Dementia.

Engagement in ’mothering’ or ’help around the home’ type of tasks are beneficial, and this place mat enables another simple and worthwhile activity promoting self-worth and satisfaction.

Many homes encourage residents to assist with household activities in order to maintain self-worth and fulfilment. One of these tasks being to lay the table; the problem being that people forget how to.

Platzmat place settings encourages continuing engagement of people in laying the table whilst providing clues to aid the failing memory.

This is simply achieved by producing a non-slip place mat which has high contrast pictograms of where the plates, cups, and cutlery go, thus providing both a guide as to how to lay the table properly and also to maintain an active and worthwhile activity for the dementia resident.
