A community that
Shines with Dementia

Living with Dementia, Living Dreams

Yumetomo Project in Kadoma

Yumetomo Project in Kadoma is a project to create community where people with dementia and the elderly can play leading roles by connecting with a variety of people and organizations, and to create the chain of smiles.

We would like to spread from Kadoma to the rest of Japan and to the world a "city where people with dementia can shine" where people can have hope instead of despair, connections instead of isolation, and dreams instead of giving up.
