Angelika has completed a practical toolkit for UK carers based on her research visit to Japan.
Why Japan? Japan has the highest proportion of people living beyond a hundred years of age. Consequently it is a society facing up to their needs for social stimulation and adapting to the loss of cognitive skills. Japan has much to teach the world.To download or obtain a copy of the toolkit click on the icon above.
