Prairie Village-based Alzheimer’s care company adds fifth home in north Leawood

first_imgSunflower Home is Care Haven’s fifth Alzheimer’s house in Johnson County.The Prairie Village-based operator of a group of residential care homes for Alzheimer’s patients has added a fifth home to the group.Care Haven homes closed the purchase of Sunflower House in north Leawood at the end of December. The facility, near the intersection of Lee Boulevard and 92nd Street, opened a year ago under the management of A New Day, a company that specialized in providing round-the-clock in-home care for patients with memory conditions. Sunflower House was its first venture into care facilities. A New Day’s managing director said the company approached Care Haven about the acquisition after deciding to focus on their core competency of in-home care.Care Haven founder Neil Barnett said Care Haven would continue with the current on-site management.“The home operates at the same high caregiver staffing level as our other homes,” he said. “Its nurses and caregivers demonstrate the same commitment to compassionate, personalized assistance. We look forward to working side-by-side with them, providing better Alzheimer’s care to more of our neighbors.”With the acquisition of Sunflower House, Care Haven now has two homes in Leawood and three in Overland Park. The company now has the capacity to support up to 36 residents at the homes it operates.last_img read more

Fremantle Port rail expansion contract awarded

first_imgAUSTRALIA: York Civil was awarded a contract to extend the North Quay Rail Terminal at Fremantle Port near Perth on October 23. The A$31m project is funded by the central government, which is contributing A$18·6m, and the state of Western Australia, which is providing A$12·4m. The work will extend the terminal tracks from 400 m to 690 m to improve access for container transhipment and shorten turnaround times. Completion is due in June 2014. ‘Efficient rail infrastructure to improve national productivity is a high priority for the Australian government’, said Minister for Infrastructure & Regional Development Warren Truss. ‘The North Quay Rail Terminal expansion is a significant step towards the State’s target of achieving a rail share of 30% for Fremantle’s container trade’, added Western Australian Transport Minister Troy Buswell. Rail’s share of container traffic at the port has grown from 2% in 2002 to 14% today, Buswell reported.last_img read more

‘The attitude was not good’ – Chelsea boss warns after Arsenal wake-up call

first_imgAntonio Conte has told his Chelsea players to start living up to their reputations after the Blues endured a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal.Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil put the Gunners out of sight before half-time at the Emirates Stadium as the hosts condemned Chelsea to their second consecutive Premier League defeat.Conte’s men were run ragged in the first 45 minutes and once again paid the penalty for a string of defensive errors.Gary Cahill gifted possession to Sanchez for the first goal, Cesar Azpilicueta was caught out of position for Walcott’s second and then Cahill and David Luiz together failed to defend a two-on-two as Ozil added a third.The result leaves Chelsea eighth in the table after six games and already eight points behind league leaders Manchester City.“If someone thinks this season is easy, we must work a lot to improve and change the situation because now we are a great team on the paper, not on the pitch,” Conte said.“I prefer to be a great team, not on paper, but also on the pitch because the pitch speaks the truth, the pitch is the most important thing for us. Not the words, not the paper. We must change this.“Last season was a bad season and last season we were a great team on the paper. This team we want to be a great team also on the pitch.“There are many difficulties but if we understand this we are in a good position to recover and to change the situation.”READ MORE: ‘Cahill is a poor man’s Rojo’ – Chelsea fans react to defender’s gaffe against Arsenal 1 No team in the top half of the Premier League has conceded more than Chelsea’s nine goals so far and they have now let in nine in their last four in all competitions.Conte switched from a back four to a back three in the second half in hope of an improvement but the damage was already done.“I think I have to solve the situation,” Conte said.“The situation is every game we have conceded two goals at a minimum. For this reason, two back, three back or four back, I don’t care.“It’s important to solve the situation. This is the most important thing. I must find the solution and I work a lot to find the right solution.”Chelsea’s defensive woes once again bring to the fore the absence of John Terry, who was not declared fit enough to feature as he completes his recovery from an ankle ligament injury.“John is recovering from a bad injury but I don’t like to talk about players that today didn’t play,” Conte said.“I don’t like this. I think this is a lack of respect for the players today who played bad or good.”last_img read more
