Hirata, T. 2019. Dementia Tojisha Movement in Japan.

Dementia tojisha movements are springing up across Japan. This film depicts one effort of working toward a better society for people with dementia, featuring Eiko, who lives with dementia and who is the mother of Dr. Shigeta, a leading dementia expert in Japan. Younger people from the community gathered to clean up their house so it can be opened as a community center. Eiko now conducts tea ceremony there, with her son helping to create an open space for people with dementia to come and mingle freely with those from the community.
