Hospital builds a replica bus stop in A&E department to calm dementia patients

Hospital builds a replica bus stop in A&E department to calm dementia patients A hospital has built a replica bus stop inside its A&E department to help people with dementia feel at home.

Southend University Hospital has constructed the stand with its own sign, timetable and bench – but no buses will be driving through the department.

It's hoped the stop will provide a familiar sight for people suffering from the brain-damaging disease, which can leave them feeling lost, confused and anxious. The Daily Mail
