A San Francisco art student recently created a unique tableware set for people living with dementia. For individuals with diseases such as Alzheimer’s, eating is a task that is often forgotten. The 'Eatwell' tableware set helps these individuals battle some of the mental and physical challenges associated with memory loss.

The Eatwell set features over 20 specially designed pieces. The custom dishes feature various spoons for different activities, bowls that help encourage eating and cups that are easy to hold, but hard to spill. Beyond the shape of the dishes, each piece is also color-coded. These specific colors are known to increase appetite and encourage eating. The memory-supporting place settings ultimately help people living with dimension by ensuring that they are able to better care for themselves.
