Identifying Dublin for Alzheimer’s Patients

My mum is a Care Assistant. She loves her job and works for a place called Cara Care Centre in Northwood, Santry. She specialises in the care of elderly Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients. People in her care range from the ages of 54 to 102. Her patients have difficulty with remembering what day it is, her name and where they are. Short term memory is poor at best. Long term memory however is fantastic. They remember everything from their school teacher’s names, childhood pets and favourite songs.

Mam has undertaken a really nice project, she’s assembling old photos of Dublin to help make the residents feel comfortable and at ease. The plan is to print and hang these photos on the walls of the centre and use them to help stimulate the residents into telling stories or regaling memories prompted by what they see.

I’m looking for help.

Can you donate some old photos? Ideally from the 1960s/1970s. Digital is fine, any dimensions at all will do.

Can you help me identify the locations of the photos I’ve gathered so far? (These photos have been removed for Copyright reasons)

If you can help me out in any way leave me a message in the comments…

  1. Pilots complete flights for their airline, using their
    simulator, either online (using a network such as Sim – Miles) or offline,
    and then file a pilot report. Nowadays with flight simulators
    you can have lots of fun out of these games and besides all this you do not have to spend
    thousands. You must, however, practice auto-rotations at the flying
    field with the help of an instructor. The main purpose of a Simulator is to understand the behavior of the system.
    Unfortunately, the series has been dormant for quite some time and there isn’t any indication that it will be returning anytime soon.

  2. Upon returning to the starting line, the first player must
    pass the sugar cube to the next teammate in line and so on.
    For adults, a virtual makeover of hair and makeup may be the equivalent of a little one hood game, with an improved style
    sensibility that tends to make the knowledge each entertaining and inspirational.
    Now, one of my co-workers was applying to the Secret Service
    and I knew that I was down as a reference for her.

  3. Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours require a lot of
    work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to
    start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
