Images of Doncaster are being used to brighten a ward and trigger memories for dementia patients.

Pictures are on display at Windermere Lodge in the St Catherine’s site, after New Vision Signs and Graphics RDaSH teamed up.

It is hoped the images will prompt older people with dementia to remember things from their past and create talking points for them and their families.

A similar project has taken place at the Laurel Ward in Scunthorpe.
