A new reminiscence room has been designed at a Norfolk care home to bring back memories for people living with dementia.
Items for the project at Brooke House in Brooke have been donated by relatives of residents and members of the community.
The room includes a Formica-topped table, an antique desk, pictures of a youthful Audrey Hepburn and old posters advertising National Savings Certificates.
Hayley Hirst, manager of the Kingsley Healthcare run home, said: 'Families have been really helpful in giving us items, the Audrey Hepburn pictures came from my hairdresser and I found a lot of things myself in The Emporium in Norwich.
'We are still putting the finishing touches to the lounge and it would be great if we had more kind donations from local people.'

Anyone with donations is invited to call the home on 01508 558359.
