I'm thinking to introduce a fake bus stop in the facility to accomodate residents with dementia who want to go home. Can anyone give me suggestions in regards to where to place the busstop, preferably outside. Does it have to be near a road to make it real or can we place it along a footpath which would be much safer. Any other comments and experiences would be much appreciated!
Thanks, Annemarie

Hi Annemarie, a bus stop along the footpath is a good idea. We had one at the last facility I worked for and it was very successful. We also had a phone booth with an old fashion phone that was often visited by clients.
