Swansea’s Cefn Coed Hospital in Wales has a 20-bed all-male wing called the Derwen Ward that focus specifically on ways to care for elderly men. One way was to build a pub, according to an article on The Alzheimer's Site website.
Men from a particular generation who worked long hours of manual labor and then relaxed at the local pub with their buddies can enjoy a non-alcoholic beer.
