The New Scientist published an article on how speaking more than one language seems to delay Alzheimer's, vascular and frontotemporal dementia for up to five years   Therefore at Luncarty House we have embarked on a Weekly Activity to Learn Spanish.  This week was "Week 1 - Greetings and Common Phrases".  Six of our Residents took part in this lesson and throughly enjoyed themselves! 

Hopefully as the weeks progress more of our Residents will join in with this Activity as it was so well received by those that participated.  Next week we will have Tapas served as we learn Spanish food names therefore this may encourage others to pop along and see what we are up to!
