Gloucestershire care home opens 1950s 'memory' street

Residents of a care home in South Gloucestershire are taking a trip back in time.

A mock 1950's street has been recreated at the Blossom Fields Care Home in Winterbourne.

Supported by the Alzheimer's Association, it is hoped it will help residents with dementia explore their memories in a natural and unforced environment.

BBC reporter Jules Hyam spoke to residents Pat and Arthur, and Paula Shears from the Alzheimer's Society.
