We MADE IT!!! It's FRIDAY!!!
WIS - Re: Alzheimers - I heard about an Alzheimer unit here in the UK which has recreated an old fashioned street scene in their gardens. It's full of
old shops, stocked with old items from the 40's, 50's and 60's. There are old cars, old music playing, even old fashioned street lighting!
When the patients spend time there, it's like they're transported back in time, to places and things they remember clearly. They relax, they
socialise, reminisce and smile!
It's such a simple idea too.
There's a transport museum in Glasgow which has also recreated a 1940's UK street scene (but indoors) , with a cobbled street, old cars, shops etc - I
always thought that would be a great place to take Alzheimers sufferers too.
We're currently getting battered by the latest storm...Gertrude?
Very high winds, loads of really heavy showers.
Many roads closed, ferries cancelled etc.
I'm going to go get some take-away Indian or Chinese food and a bottle of wine (or twelve), and hunker down for the night.
Andy Murray has made it to the final of the Aussie Open Tennis in Melbourne again. Woohoo!!
(For those of you reading this in the USA or Canadia!, I should explain that the "final" is at the business end of the tournament where you win the
actual title if you can win that last match.
Welcome Home Doc!
Let the weekend fun begin!
