Hospitals can be scary places for a lot of people, says Dementia Nurse Specialist, Bridget Fordham.

She has worked to make the wards she works on less daunting for people with dementia.

Four key wards at St Thomas' Hospital in London now have brighter coloured walls with clear signs and each patient with dementia is given a distinctive blue wrist band.

Bridget explains how these new changes may improve hospital stays for people with the condition.
