Homes for the elderly

I am posting this on behalf of a few elderly people living in the UK and Europe. Does any one know if there are any Council homes or by any chance privately run council homes being run any where in Turkey?

Is this another business venture idea Velvet? or, do you want to open a Indian kitchen in a care-home in Turkey now?

Can't imagine why "the elderly in the UK & Europe" (incidentally - the UK is IN Europe) would be asking you about the availability of Council Care Homes in Turkey............ My mum hasn't contacted you, has she?

Re: Homes for the elderly

tintagel, I wonder why you get stressed up so quickly, you sound like good son and for sure you look after your mum.. Please answer if you have knowledge of this subject. I am simply trying to help a few elderly in my family who desire to live together as a group ( three ladies )

Good luck to the ladies in your family. Have they not considered other countries whose climates are more temperate & suitable to their care & comfort?

PS: I'm a 'Daughter' not a 'Son' lol & I'm feeling very chilled thanks

Re: Homes for the elderly

Yea you have point, certainly as compared to UK and Ireland weather might be a bit better here, plus Turkey and Pakistan have culturally and historically been very close since the nineteenth century. More than two thousand words spoken in Urdu are actually Turkish.The word "Urdu" is also Turkish, means kind of an army or a battalion.

"The word Urdu is derived from the same Turkish word ordu (army) that has given English horde.[7]

Since the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate and the Mughal Empire until the British Raj, Hindustani, written in the Urdu script, was the language of both Hindus and Muslims. The language was variously known as Hindi, Hindavi and Dehlavi. The communal nature of the language lasted until it replaced Persian as the official language in 1837 and was made coofficial along with English. This triggered a Hindu backlash in northwestern India, which argued that the language should be written in the native Devanagari script. Thus a new literary register, called "Hindi", replaced traditional Hindustani as the official language of Bihar in 1881, establishing a sectarian divide of "Urdu" for Muslims and "Hindi" for Hindus, a divide that was formalized with the division of India and Pakistan after independence (though there are Hindu poets who continue to write in Urdu to this day). At independence, Pakistan established a highly Persianized literary standard of Urdu as its official language.

Although there have been attempts to "purify" Urdu and Hindi by purging them of, respectively, their Sanskrit and Persian loan words, and new vocabulary draws primarily from Persian and Arabic for Urdu and from Sanskrit for Hindi, this has primarily affected academic and literary vocabulary, and both national standards remain heavily influenced by both Persian and Sanskrit.[8] English has exerted a heavy influence on both as a coofficial language."

It's always interesting to look at words, origins, derivations etc.
