Tuesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Robin Gibb: So sad that Robin Gibb has died after a long battle with cancer. He was just 62. I’m guessing that his family must be very grateful that he awoke from a coma for a couple of weeks, giving them a chance to say their goodbyes. Vale Mr Gibb. Read on at the BBC.
Alzheimer’s: Oh I love this story. In the US, a program called Timeslips is encouraging patients with Alzheimer’s disease to tell stories. They are shown an image and encouraged to make up stories and chat with others about what is going on in the photo. For people who have trouble accessing memories, it’s an alternative way to chat and communicate imaginatively and successfully, especially if they are constantly being prompted to remember ‘real life’ stories they may be unable to. Partners and family members speak of the relief that comes from being able to communicate with their loved one, even if it’s not about real life experiences, it’s a way of connecting and being more social.
