Brk shapes the future for residents in the retirement home

Brk shapes the future for residents in the retirement home

With the new building, 36 residents’ places were created on three levels. In the meantime, some seniors have already moved into their new domicile. One of them is isova zipfel. The 91-year-old has been living in the BRK senior citizens’ home for two and a half years and suffers from dementia.

Not an easy situation for their relatives. Grandma was originally cared for at home, according to her grandson-in-law, jurgen kempf. Finally, when isova zipfel began to struggle with dementia and the disease progressed, the caregivers’ ability to cope with the strain had reached its limits.

Jurgen kempf and the other members of the family often visit their mother, or rather grandmother. They are convinced that their grandmother will be in good hands in the extension building. "We had never been able to give them this kind of care at home!".

Bad kissingen: salinenblick becomes a health center

For two and a half years the salinenblick has been closed. Now walkers can see in the evening that the building is lit up again. The guest rooms have been renovated in recent weeks so that all kinds of health courses can be held there in the future – from pilates and yoga to autogenic training, nutritional counseling and couples therapies. Patricia purkert and meike seltmann are transforming the pub into the new "sinneszeit" seminar and health center.

"It is important to us that we have a wide range of offers", says meike seltmann. The center is able, for example, to accompany a woman through different stages of her life, such as courses for pregnancy, postnatal courses, courses with babies and courses for older children. In principle, courses are planned for all genders and all age groups. "We can already cover all target groups", says purkert.

Bundling course offerings

26-year-old meike seltmann actually comes from a sales background. Since she became a mother, she has been giving freelance kanga training, i.E. Fitness courses for mothers with their babies, in bad kissingen and the surrounding area. Patricia purkert (43) comes from wurzburg and originally worked as a technical draftswoman and graphic designer. She took over a yoga studio in schweinfurt, which she developed into a holistic health center. For private reasons, they gave it up again after two years. "But i have continued to pursue the concept", she says.

Saudi arabia’s king salman in hospital

saudi arabia's king salman in hospital

Saudi king salman has been hospitalized for a gall bladder inflammation. The 84-year-old had to undergo medical examinations because of the illness, the state agency SPA reported, citing the royal court.

He was treated in riyadh at the king faisal hospital, which is considered one of the best in the country. There is constant speculation about the monarch’s state of health. In march there were media reports about arrests in the royal family. These have led to rumors that crown prince mohammed bin salman is trying to eliminate possible rivals for the throne because his father is dead or dying. The crown prince is already the de facto ruler of the country and is expected to succeed king salman on the throne upon his death.

King salman rarely appears in public anymore. In mid march, he gave a short televised speech in which he described the fight against the corona virus as a "difficult phase" for saudi arabia. The country is home to some 251.000 infections reported in the arab world hit particularly hard by the pandemic.

Success of one-euro jobs depends strongly on the field of employment

Success of one-euro jobs depends strongly on the field of employment

For example, the employment of women in the booming health and care industry has proven to be a more sustainable bridge to regular employment than, for example, the work of eastern german men in environmental protection projects and landscape conservation.

This is the result of a study by the nurnberg institute for labor market and occupational research (IAB).

Comparatively quickly, even those one-euro jobbers who were employed in childcare or youth welfare found a job subject to social security contributions, report the authors of the study, markus kiesel and joachim wolff. According to the researchers, it was mainly west german women who were considered difficult to place who benefited from the fact that many new jobs were created in these sectors.

Difficult passage: handball votes on season cancellation

difficult passage: handball votes on season cancellation

The handball clubs of the german national league and 2. Bundesliga decide in the next few days whether to cancel the season. If a three-quarters majority votes in favor, the seasons in the two top leagues will be history.

Whether there will be champions as well as relegated and promoted teams will be decided solely by the board of the handball-bundesliga gmbh (HBL). The clubs have no say in the matter. "We hope to have the result as early as next monday or tuesday," said HBL managing director frank bohmann. Shortly beforehand, the 36 clubs of the two top leagues had agreed on this approach via video conference.

Should the majority of the clubs be against a termination, there are models for a continuation of the season. One thing bob hanning, managing director of the fuchse berlin, brought to the discussion. "I am personally a friend of continuing to play and see opportunities for this," said hanning. "I proposed to the league what a scenario could look like."He did not want to reveal more details.
