Bus stop brings back the memories

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A Bromsgrove care home has taken delivery of a 1950s ‘Midland Red’ bus stop to help residents take a trip down Memory Lane. Regents Court specialises in caring for people with dementia and is carrying out pioneering work to stimulate discussion and memories for its residents.

‘We already have two 1950s postboxes inside the home and now have our own Midland Red bus stop which is prompting a lot of interest, memories and discussion among our residents,’ said Karen Hancox, manager of Regents Court, a part of the Alpha Care Homes group.
