The barber helping men with dementia

Lenny takes his pop-up barbershop to dementia care homes, providing a much-needed service to the men who live there. But Lenny does more than cut their hair: he unlocks their emotional memories by recreating the barbershop experience of their youth, with Dean Martin on the jukebox and a spray of lemon cologne in the air. "He doesn't rush you and he makes you feel so at home," says Sidney, 92.
