Although it's possible for many seniors to continue living independent and productive lives at home, that doesn't mean that it's always easy. For elderly family members, some simple tasks may become more difficult, and although they would like to continue living on their own, they may not be able to function by themselves in the same way that they once were able to. That doesn't mean, though, that it can't be done, or that there aren't ways for you to make their lives easier.
Imagine if you can a 5 story brick building in the middle of 5 acres of land with fencing all around at about 7 feet high. At the north end of the land there is a beautiful man-made lake with benches and a small dock to fish off of. At the east end of the land you see a small little forest of Evergreen trees and weeping willows, with a trail going towards the southern end of the land. The west end of the land is all open fields, lots of space to run around and just have fun! As you walk up the front walk way you see a large sign "Angel Haven".
As a music educator, I have always been an advocate for engaging children in music from an early age. I myself started piano lessons when I was four years old, and those music skills have stuck with me for 26 years now. Engaging kids in music is not only good for their cognitive skills, but it can also help them to come up with their own creative environment. There are countless amounts of times that we hear kids singing a song they made up...let them! Let those creative skills show!
Having a personal safety devices can save a child during situations where the parents may not always be present. Children like to play and to explore their world and wonder off in their own thoughts. In that process, accidents could happen and the possible sustain of injuries or worse is ever present. Unfortunately, in some cases those injuries can be fatal with more than two million children under the age of 15 are estimated to experience injuries arising from accidents in and around the home every year. It is also estimated that 62 children under the age of five lose their lives yearly as a result of injuries sustained during accidents.
