Some people reach places in their lives

they never planned to go.

They think they know where they're going,

but the destination turns out...

different from expected.

Some don't even realize they've already

reached the place.

They still seem lost.

Something tells them to keep walking.

That the destination is just up ahead.

Often when we walk that road...

the footprints behind us disappear.

Because we're creating

new paths each time.

I knew you'd be happy.

We'll do as planned.

We'll be together, Hon.

Tell Paulo it's my request.

And you, find a buyer already.

Ma'am, I was worried

you won't go to class anymore.

I had to arrange the kids' papers.

Let's hurry, I'm late.

Practice this carefully.

You can't just stand around

when your patient gets an attack.

Learn how to read food labels.

Know the nutritional content

of what you prepare for your patients.

- Are you sure

- You can't go abroad...

your BP is too high!

Ma'am, should we take her to the hospital?

In a severe state of a person suffering

from Alzheimer's disease...

he needs help

in "activities of daily living" or ADL.

He may even experience

acute confusion...

delusion, hallucination, and seizures.

Remember, there is no treatment

available yet for this disease.

All dishes have to be in solid color,

anyone know why?

- Ma'am, so they can easily see the food.

- Correct.

How does the heart change

as we grow older?

As the body ages,

the heart rate slows down,

causing slower pulse rate

and blood circulation.

The blood vessels become narrower.

Return him to position slowly...

before you fasten the strap.

If this is a real foreigner,

he will be very heavy.

Who wants to try?

Galang, Alex!

They disapproved my visa...

I got confused

by their English at the embassy!

- Where did you apply?

- Japan.

- You studied Japanese?

- It's very easy, because I'm very bright.

- Sarah, where did you apply?

- U.K.

- Really? What's the language there?

- Ukrainian, of course!

You can't go there

if you don't know that!

You have to be bright like me.

Pau, come help Mama.

Thanks, Garci.

You won't have a problem with water here.

The place is cool,

especially when the windows are open.

There are only two of us,

so we leave them closed.

Makes cleaning easier.

This is the master's bedroom.

It faces east

so it's cool even in the afternoon.

It's spacious.

So many possibilities for design.

Come.

Excuse me, son.

Come in.

This is my son Paulo.

This is perfect for the Nursery.

Even closer to the-

Do you want to see outside?

Time's up, pass your papers.

Class, I have a very important

announcement to make.

Starting next Monday,

Mrs. Biglaen is taking over this class.

She will be your new English teacher.

I want you to be as attentive

and diligent in her class...

as you have been in mine.

Miss, where are you going?

I will be working abroad.

Like Mrs. Silvosa?

Yes, but Mrs. Silvosa is in Kuwait,

while I will be going to London.

- Miss, my sister is also in London!

- Really, what does she do there?

Caregiver!

She told me she wipes

the butts of the older people there.

You girls are mean!

When I get there,

that's probably what I'll be doing.

So what?

Pounds are bigger than dollars!

And life there is pleasurable!

In fact, you're lucky, Sarah.

My cousin, who is a nurse in UK,

owns a house!

During the vacation season, they turn Paris

in to their local shopping mall.

From what I know, you can get

a British passport in just five years!

What, five years?

- Five years of wiping butts?

- Don't you start!

- Ma'am, I put it in the freezer.
