False Bus Stops

a bus to nowhere

In Australia, the United Kingdom and Germany, some nursing homes build false bus stops for their patients who are suffering from dementia.

Some of these bus stops are even fitted with outdated advertisements and timetables – 30 years outdated. The patients will sit at the bus stop waiting for a bus to take them to their imagined destination. After some time the nursing staff comes to escort the clients back to the retirement home.
