In 1874 the Hospital for Incurables was opened by the Women's Christian Association in London. Over the century and a half since then, the hospial has moved to four locaions, the newest it's present one, in south London. It's now known as Parkwood Institute.
Parkwood is a specialized hospital, focussing on rehabilitation and the care of veterans rather than the usual acute care most hospitals do. For example, on my floor they deal with acquired bain injury, and amputees as well as spinal cord injuries. The focus is on getting you back home.
A brand new building is the newest facility at Parkood. Opened in 2014, it is the Mentjal Health Care Building, and picks up on 150 years of mental health caare in London.
Mrs. Furry Gnome has been at home in Meaford for a few days and has turned to making jam of several varieties. With more jam than we can easily use over the year, I'm thinking I'll be eating it by the spoonful!
I'm sitting here looking out the window at a rainy day. It's a holiday here, so things are quiet. But my stubby fingers are not cooperatinng, so I think that's it for today.
