COLUMBUS, Ind. (WJW) — A restaurant in Indiana has crafted its menu and atmosphere for those with dementia and their families.

WISH reports Amazing Joe’s is introducing a “Forget-Me-Not” menu with bright photos and simple descriptions.

Nick Grams, managing partner at the restaurant, said his mother passed away after battling dementia, and visiting restaurants was sometimes a challenge due to forgotten orders, loud music and commotion.

On one Sunday each month, Amazing Joe’s will provide diners with the special new menu and seat them in a quiet back room that’s close to the kitchen. The lights and music will be turned down.
