Whether at home, in a nursing home or a hospice – people in need of care should always get the best care possible. Thereby, carers have to pay attention to individual factors like a different cultural background for example. REHACARE.com shows why this is so important by the example of some culturally sensitive projects in our Topic of the Month April: intercultural care.
That people see the positive skills of others first, and not their shortcomings – that is Katrin Sickerts heartfelt wish. But also traveling is very high on her wish list.

Literature should be accessible to all – including people who depend on texts written in Simple English. A project in Frankfurt, Germany, now wants to make this possible. REHACARE.com spoke with Hauke Hückstädt, the director of the Literaturhaus Frankfurt (English: House of Literature Frankfurt) about the "Frankfurt, deine Geschichte. Literatur in Einfacher Sprache" (English: Frankfurt. This is your story. Literature in Simple Language) project.
