The German city of Gronau, just across the border near Enschede, has a new sight to see; last week, the Bethesda-Seniorenzentrum received the first Tovertafel in all of Germany.
While closely watched by the German deliverers of moments of happiness, Markus and Henry, Netty (Active Cues' sales manager), care workers of the Seniorenzentrum, and local press, the Bethesda coffee table suddenly turned into an interactive field of flowers. Residents Bertha, Hannelore, Margot and Ernst were pleasantly surprised by how their table had seemed to come alive. A journalist of the Gronauer Nachrichten cites one resident: “Das ist ja schön”
Markus and Henry are Active Cues' German partners. Markus first saw the Tovertafel at Medica 2015. He was so inspired by the innovation that he was determined to bring the Tovertafel to the German market. Together with Henry, he has been spreading moments of happiness with the Tovertafel since late 2016. Henry: “We can't wait to create more moments of happiness with the Tovertafel in Germany.”
Why did Reinhard von Loh, director at Bethesda-Seniorenzentrum, have to have a Tovertafel? It doesn't take him long to answer: “Die Tovertafel ist einfach magisch.”
