Summary of The 36-Hour Day by Nancy L. Mace and Peter V. Rabins | Includes Analysis Preview: The 36-Hour Day by Nancy Mace and Peter Rabins is a detailed self-help guide for people caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other memory impairments. The burdens on caregivers are immense. They first must have a physician adequately assess their loved one’s condition and help the family come up with a plan for comprehensive and appropriate care. Often, these plans must be implemented in the face of disruptive or illogical behaviors due to memory loss and the emotional toll that accompanies it. Adjusting to this new way of life can be overwhelming for many caregivers so The 36-Hour Day offers clear strategies for addressing the physical and emotional needs of both dementia patients and those responsible for their care. The term “dementia” describes a group of symptoms, such as mental confusion, loss of memory, and general discombobulation.

»Erzählungen von großer Meisterschaft, mit Witz, mit Tempo, mit Frechheit« Elke Heidenreich Julian Barnes wird immer wieder gepriesen für seine stilistische Brillanz, für die scharfe Beobachtungsgabe, die Ironie und den oft schwarzen Humor. Der Erzählungsband mit dem geheimnisvollen Titel Der Zitronentisch zeigt Julian Barnes in seiner ganzen Meisterschaft. Jede Erzählung steht für sich, doch sind alle durch das Thema miteinander verbunden – das Altern. Ob die Erzählungen nun im 19. Jahrhundert oder in unserer Zeit spielen, die Menschen nähern sich dem Ende ihres Lebens, dem Ende, das sich in besonderen Erfahrungen und oft irrwitzigen Situationen ankündigt. Sie gehen damit gelassen um oder aufbegehrend, resigniert oder bitter. Die Zitrone, erfährt der Leser in der letzten Erzählung Stille, ist für die Chinesen das Symbol des Todes. In dieser Erzählung über den ausgebrannten Komponisten Sibelius treffen sich die alten Männer an einem (nicht Stamm-, sondern) Zitronentisch, um über ihr Ende zu sprechen: »Kopf hoch! Der Tod ist nicht mehr fern.« Julian Barnes erhielt 2004 den Österreichischen Staatspreis für Europäische Literatur. Der Preis wurde im August 2005 verliehen.

Utopien für Realisten

Die Zeit ist reif für die 15-Stunden-Woche, offene Grenzen und das bedingungslose Grundeinkommen

Was sind heute die großen Ideen? Historischer Fortschritt basierte fast immer auf utopischen Ideen: Noch vor 100 Jahren hätte niemand für möglich gehalten, dass die Sklaverei abgeschafft oder die Demokratie wirklich existieren würde. Doch wie begegnen wir den Herausforderungen der modernen Arbeitswelt, des Familienlebens, des gesamten globalen Gefüges? Der niederländische Vordenker Rutger Bregman sagt: «Das wahre Problem unserer Zeit ist nicht, dass es uns nicht gut ginge oder dass es uns in Zukunft schlechter gehen könnte. Das wahre Problem ist, dass wir uns nichts Besseres vorstellen können.» Wir müssen es wagen, das Unmögliche zu denken, denn nur so finden wir Lösungen für die Probleme unserer Zeit. Bregman macht deutlich, warum das bedingungslose Grundeinkommen eine echte Option ist und inwiefern die 15-Stunden-Woche eine Antwort auf die Digitalisierung der Arbeit sein kann. «Alternativlos» ist für Bregman keine Option, sogar die Armut kann abgeschafft werden, wie er am Beispiel einer kanadischen Stadt zeigt. Bregmans Visionen sind inspirierend, seine Energie ist mitreißend; er zeigt: Utopien können schneller Realität werden, als wir denken. «Rutger Bregman rüttelt uns wach.» The Times

A revolutionary new approach to Alzheimer’s care, focusing on a patient’s strengths to maintain connections with others and the world There currently is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease— though it can be treated. For the last fifteen years, John Zeisel, Ph.D. has spearheaded a movement to treat Alzheimer’s non-pharmacologically by focusing on the mind’s strengths. I’m Still Here is a guidebook to Dr. Zeisel’s treatment ideas, showing the possibility and benefits of connecting with an Alzheimer’s patient through their abilities that don’t diminish with time, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions, and touch. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other strategies, it’s possible to offer the person a quality life with connection to others and to the world. In March 2013, Dr. Zeisel and his work will be the focus of the program airing on public television stations entitled “Hopeful Aging,” bringing his life-changing ideas to a national audience.
