'Memories corridor' for Bridgend dementia patients

Full details of spot-checks on more than 20 mental health wards for elderly patients are being revealed.

The inspections were ordered by the Welsh health minister last autumn.

They found a "considerable variation" in standards and raised concerns about prescribing, training, the skill mix of staff and catering services.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke talked to Donella Davies, a ward sister at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, who explained how photos along a corridor are used to stimulate the memories of dementia patients.
