Welcome to this edition of ShanghaiLive.I'm Aixinjueluo Bei.
A special restaurant has opened in downtownXuhui district. It hires seniors with Alzheimer's disease【阿尔茨海默症】and was inspired by Dragon TV's【东方卫视】 charity reality show【真人秀】: Forget Me Not Cafe 【忘不了餐厅】. The goal is to spread awareness about the disease and help peopleunderstand how to interact【交流】 with people withAlzheimer's.
Forget Me Not Cafe is on Yongjia Road,where the reality show was filmed. At 11am on Sunday, employees Li Junhu andZhu Caiping arrived for their shift【轮班】. They were onthe reality show and known by their nicknames, Grandpa Xiaomin and GrandmaCaiping.
With the help of others, Grandpa andGrandma tried their best to remember their work environment.
Although Grandpa and Grandma sometimesforget which dishes go to which table, there were volunteers on standby【待命】 to help. They also reminded both to take a break from time to time【不时地】.
"Forget Me Not Cafe" was areality show that aired on Dragon TV in 2019 and 2020. In both seasons, fiveseniors with Alzheimer's disease worked as servers【服务员】 in the restaurant. After the reality show ended last year, the crew decided torent the place, hire a professional company to run the restaurant and offerjobs to the seniors.
The restaurant is recruiting more seniors,and plans to offer more posts to those with Alzheimer's disease.
