Over the years, the castle developed into the ancestral home of the Droste family to Vischering. 1521 largely burned down part of the facility.

Therefore, on the one hand we will reject the ineffective proclamation of a climate emergency and on the other hand we will continue our real-political approaches to environmental protection. For example, we made a request for the upcoming meeting of the Environment Committee, which aims to contain microplastics in Bocholt. "[...]

Caritas offers memory training for seniors - info session 13.6. 10 clock

If the knot in the handkerchief is not enough ... Caritas offers memory training for seniors. This is true not only for physical fitness but also for brain function. Memory training helps to strengthen mental flexibility. Especially in old age an important factor for the longest possible health and self-determination. Therefore, the Caritas Association offers a memory training for seniors from summer on. Sandra Wölker, certified memory trainer of the German society for memory training, describes the program as follows: "Our brain is like a road network. There are highways that drive many of our thoughts almost automatically. Then there are highways that we use every now and then, but they work quite well. And then there are the dirt roads, there it goes slower and haltingly. So we avoid them. Not to mention the wild paths. But these are especially important to expose. Because the older we get, the more important it is that we can offer our brains alternatives, to access knowledge, to make decisions or to remember things. "As long as one is healthy, one pays little attention to how important these internalized Memory processes are. But when the brain is affected by age or illness, many suddenly realize how limited their lives are. Where is the key? What's the name of the man's best friend? How was the pin for the account? "We need to tell the information how important they are. Otherwise, they bob around a time in short-term memory and then disappear. Only if we signal the information through repeated retrieval that we need it, do they commit themselves in long-term memory, "explains Wölker. Especially good help if information is stored twice. Thus, Wölker means the linking of information and emotion. "Things that we associate with stories or feelings are stored very firmly. These are the things that we remember even when we can not recall many other things. "So that as much as possible can be retrieved, people can specifically work on" safe-depositing "information, as Wölker calls it. How to do it shows next to other tricks in the new program. The exercise program stimulates thinking and imagination in a playful way, improves concentration and memory. The course consists of 8 units a 90 minutes. Here the participants get to know methods in a stress-free atmosphere to activate and refresh their mental powers. The course costs 60 € .Sandra Wölker, certified memory trainer of the German Society for Memory Training, presents the offer on Thursday, 13.6.2019 at 10 clock in the Café Querbeet in the CaritasCentrum, Northern Wall 44-46.Registration not required, but helpful for better planning .Sandra Wölker, sandra.woelker@caritas-bocholt.de <mailto: sandra.woelker@caritas-bocholt.de>, 02871-2513-1205 [...]
