Thailand Exporting Alzheimers
In this photo taken Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, a Thai caretaker, right, carries Gerhard, an Alzheimer patient from Switzerland in a swimming pool at Baan Khamlangchai care center in Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand. Thailand is poised to attract more Alzheimer’s sufferers from the Alpine country and elsewhere. In this pleasant city of Chiang Mai ringed by mountains "Baan Kamlangchay" will be followed by a $10 million dollar, holiday-like home scheduled to open before mid-2014 and a small Alzheimer’s unit within a retirement community set on the grounds of a former four-star resort.
