Only2Clicks - speed dial to favorite web site and make it your start page 10 alternativas a iGoogle para tu página de inicio Hace unos días Google volvía a la carga con las cancelaciones y cierres en sus servicios, con el fin de reflotar un poco su actividad online ya que muchos de ellos han quedado obsoletos o sencillamente no dan beneficios suficientes a la compañía en contraposición a los problemas de mantenimiento que acarrean. No se puede decir que iGoogle, uno de los servicios afectados, haya caído en el saco de lo obsoleto, y el anuncio de su cierre deja huérfanos a millones de usuarios que preferían tener una página completamente personalizada basada en el buscador de Google. Afortunadamente, y como expuse el otro día en un artículo llamado La dependencia de la web y de los servicios que nos ofrece, no hay que preocuparse en exceso, ya que la diversidad y el gran número de personas conectadas hace que en la mayoría de los casos haya muchas alternativas donde elegir.

Tackling loneliness in older people - Gracewell Healthcare Blog Isolation and loneliness is an increasing problem in the UK with as many as 800,000 older people described as “chronically lonely” and at least five million say television is their main form of company. At Gracewell Healthcare we couldn’t ignore these shocking statistics so throughout the year different homes will be participating in our Tackling Loneliness campaign where we work with our communities to make resources available to the older people who need it most. By making people aware of what is on offer, ensuring everyone feels welcome to attend and providing support with transport and facilities we believe that we can make a difference to many people’s lives. This week the first of such campaigns was launched at Salisbury Manor care home by the Mayor of Salisbury, Penny Brown, and in partnership with the University of the Third Age (U3A). Mayor Penny Brown, representatives of U3A, staff and residents of Salisbury Manor Mayor Penny Brown said she was delighted to support the campaign.

Randell House is known for its warm and friendly atmosphere that you can feel as soon as you walk through the door and over the past year we’ve tried to get as many people from the community involved in home life as possible. Last spring we teamed up with our local Cub Scout group in Farnborough to create some lovely hanging baskets. Residents and the cubs worked together to create some beautiful blooms. Our communities: Weymouth - Gracewell Healthcare Blog In our second look at our local communities we focus on Weymouth, home to Highclere House and all things by the sea.
