Perfume can make a real difference

This simple, but wonderful idea was sent in by Caroline Billbrough...

Scent is an important memory for older people. In hospital it can be nice to have favourite scents to cheer the patient up and bring back happy memories. My mum, recovering from a bad stroke, likes having her favourite perfume behind her ears before she goes to sleep at night.
