Hospice care is a type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a chronically ill, terminally ill or seriously ill patient’s pain and symptoms, and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs. In Western society, the concept of hospice has been evolving in Europe since the 11th century. Then, and for centuries thereafter in Roman Catholic tradition, hospices were places of hospitality for the sick, wounded, or dying, as well as those for travelers and pilgrims
These are wooden tulips that when finished will be sold in the Residents bazaar. We get them at a very low price, unfinished from Pastor Ramor’s husband Alvin. Our job is to sand and varnish them ready for sale. The proceeds go to our Recreation fund.
Our Recreation fund is used for things WE CARE ABOUT. And Care we do, about others outside who need help. The poor, the homeless, relatives of residents here who are passing on and need respite accommodation etc.
Thankyou resident men club.
Here on earth we have realized the importance of long term care homes. Now there is talk of sending a space ship with humans aboard to colonize a far distant planet all of which will take a lot of travel time. Perhaps the humans will be in stasis? Whatever the colonists will need to also build nursing homes.
Meanwhile back on earth those impatient scientists will continue to develop new things including humanoid robots. Folk will want the colonists to know immediately they arrive about all the new things developed on earth. How? Whatever, the colonists will need to know how to build humanoid robots
Sorry folk, as we are finding that just as we cannot comprehend the final questions about our Cosmos so it turns out that we cannot understand Quantum Entanglement that we had hoped to give us FASTER THAN LIGHT COMMUNICATION.
The hope could possibly be realized but how?
Residents in long term care nursing homes pass some time reminiscing to themselves about the good times and bad times of former life.
My suggestion is not to dwell on the many small and often bad times of former life with family but instead think of the major and good times we enjoyed. Bet everyone has family good times to think about and re-enjoy in our minds.
So when alone try Counting the Good Times enjoyed with family and re-live them in our minds.
At the last Resident Council Meeting (Feb 6) we heard of progress. Efforts to find out what proved the promise to be one of empty words. I cannot report progress.
