Abstract: A GE, is major risk factor with only 2% cases appearing before the age of 65years. India will have enormous number of older persons in 20yrs and the prevalence of dementia is expected to double every 5 years (Shaji K. S, 2010). The number of caregivers might also increase as the majority of informal caregivers themselves are older. With the increase in the number of diagnosed patients as the caregiving aspect becomes indispensable and this would need more focus on managing the resources related caregiving burnout and their wellbeing (Karlsson et al.2006). Families of elderly in the rural areas used more formal care than in the urban areas. (McAuley et al.2004). Confined capacity in ADL‟s serves as predictors of formal care (Larsson et al.2006: Liu et al. 2000).............

Due to easy online access, people have become more aware of the high-end luxury brands and their specialty................

Abstract: Education since long has come to be viewed as an agent and an agency of social change and as a harbinger of positive social transformation. In view of its positive implications for the welfare and wellbeing of the masses and thereby for their social and material conditions of existence, education has come to be viewed as an important causative or an explanatory social variable in the analysis of contemporary social reality. Further, education has been viewed as of seminal significance in determining the occupational aspirations and achievements, determining the levels of awareness and empowerment, as well as conditioning the lifestyles and consumption patterns.

Abstract: A central aspect that has guided the completion of this study is the influential role of combinations of family and workloadson stress and their direct consequences for family and working life. Important variables caused by stress within the family are advanced in this study such as child-care, care of the elderly and housework. Conversely and in direct relation with working life, the study seeks to confirm that the speed of work in itself affects stress, all the more so in combination with family loads such as child-care, care of the elderly and housework. Othervariables within working life such as working to tight deadlines and even the number of hours at work each week will have considerable influence, in combination with family loads, on the likelihood of suffering high levels of stress..........

Country : Nigeria
Authors : Dr. Onyekachi Awa
: 10.9790/0837-2306033440    logo

Abstract: African literature is a fête of African traditions. The focus of this investigation was to investigate how the contemporary African novelists have used their novels as a stand point to showcase the African culture to the world. Particularly, the works of Chimamanda Adichie and Akachi Adimora Ezigbo were examined. They demonstrated the synergetic relationship between language, culture and literature as each complements and projects the other. This exploration is anchored on the theory of Culturology. This theory emphasizes the supremacy of the culture of the people over other systems because while society is split into classes and parties, each fighting for power and supremacy, culture unites the people and transcends social, national and historical boundaries. The descriptive system of data analysis...........
