Practical, small and handy: Everyday aids

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

An app that displays broken elevators, add-ons that make cosmetic products usable for everyone, or special aids for specific food intake needs – there are many ways in which people with disabilities can be supported in their everyday lives. In our current Topic of the Month we have compiled an exemplary overview.

Have a relaxed week,

Nadine Lormis

Leaving the comfort zone and doing things people don't expect from her, let alone trust her to be able to do – Anja Hebel loves to go beyond boundaries.

Advancing dementia and its effect on care home relationships

As dementia advances, in most cases it can change the behaviour displayed by those with the condition.
