    home care uk may seem like a very expensive option, but when you consider the advantages of your loving one who recover quickly at home, the amount of money spent in the hospital is a lot more.

      My mtehor had Alzheimer’s dementia. The home she was in provided things for people to touch memories. A piano was brought in for one woman who had played for the silent movies, then later, played with some symphonies around the US. It sat in the common area. Although she was barely intelligible when she spoke, she would often sit at the piano and fill the air with wonderful music. It often began in the style of silent movie accompaniment, but would sometimes change when ..Another resident had a lovely baritone voice. He had sung in operas for many years. He often broke into the most lovely songs. When the above lady played, he almost always began singing. And when he sang, she heard him and responded by joining him in whatever song he was presenting. The two never spoke that the staff noticed, yet they seemed to be connected during those times.As a lovely side note, my mtehor who seemed totally disconnected for her surroundings at this time, would hear the music and simply stop and listen intently. She played the piano and sang in operettas in high school back in the 1920s, then in the church choir for many years after that and had a sweet alto voice. She never joined the other two, but for those moments, her restless, aimless wandering behavior stopped and she looked quite peaceful. It was lovely for us to see.

        #7 Sort of, if you’re talking only about the First Quorum of Seventy, but even among that quruom there are exceptions. There have been many members of the Second Quorum of Seventy (who are also General Authorities)who have served after age 70, including Robert Oaks, Donald Staheli, and William Parmley, to name a few recent examples. The Second Quorum are released and are not designated emeritus . As to the First Quorum, I can think of three who are currently serving at age 70 Elders Richard Hinckley, Cecil Samuelson, and Yoshihiko Kikuchi. They may be designated emeritus at the upcoming October General Conference, but maybe not. Other recent exceptions to the age 70 rule within the First Quorum include Earl Tingey, Lynn Mickelson, and Charles Didier, all age 74 at the time of their emeritus designation. Elders F. Burton Howard and Rolf Kerr were 72.
