A nursing home in Germany has come up with a novel idea to stop their Alzheimer’s patients from wandering off – a fake bus stop.

The plan is that patients who decide they want to go somewhere end up waiting at the stop for a bus that will never arrive and eventually forget why they ever wanted to go out in the first place. Presumably they got the idea after trying to travel by bus in England on a Sunday.
