    I love this idea of concentrating populations based on culture/ethnicity. There's another Alzheimer's facility here in IL that bases its floors on early 1900's themes -- music, food, furniture. The nurses are as culturally varied as any but the residents love it == it's familiar, their LT memory is more intact. This is what the patient recalls, so why not?
    I wonder what the wards will be like in 20 years when Baby Boomers (of which I'm one) begin to get senile. Maybe it will be less than 20 because of all the illicit drugs... I can imagine the healthcare workers of the future groaning "Ohmigawd, do we have to listen to those old-f**t Beatles and Doors again? I'm so sick of changing the tie-dyed gowns on these residents."

    They'll be people like my neices and nephews, so they'll be used to this music anyway.

    I got a great laugh out of that --- I can just imagine the grumbling to the Beatles!
