Dear Sir or Madam,

However, not all want to live in a nursing home, but rather in their own homes. talked to Heike Senge of the Nursing Academy Lower Rhine about home care by relatives and the forum at REHACARE 2016. Get to know more in our current video.

But also professional caregivers are confronted with a major challenge: How do I reply to the question "Do I come here out alive?" from gravely ill person? Often we tend to an "empathic emotional overreaction". What this looks like Marius Deckers explains in this interview.

Enjoy wachting and reading!

For people with Parkinson's disease or paralysis, it's not always easy to put food into their mouths. It often doesn't end up in their mouth, but next to the plate instead. To avoid needing to be fed, people with disabilities can choose among various assistive devices – depending on their needs. Ergonomically contoured utensils or tools to assist in grasping items are available to help.
