ALL ABOARD AT HOMEFIELD

23 September 2010

A full size bus stop, donated to Mission Care by Transport for London (https://tfl.gov.uk/) , has been installed in the gardens of Homefield nursing home, Bickley.

Inspired by simillar projects in Germany that were reported in The Telegraph newspaper (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/) , it is hoped that the bus stop will serve as a strong reminiscence point for residents and for those older people who are anxious and attempt to return to their previous homes. Kate Falana, Registered Manager (pictured with a resident) remarked that, 'the bus stop has already proved a great success' explaining, 'it is a real point of conversation and has served as a comfort to our residents living with dementia who are happy to sit at the bus stop with carers, reminscing about the journeys that they used to make or to plan a route into Bromley.
