Design of Hicks 2 brings enormous street appeal S

treet appeal of the Hicks 2 (406-68) is enormous. It has a special roofline, a tall gable accented with a half moon window, and a railed porch. The home is a great size to be a starter home or an empty nester home. Entry has the vaulted master suite on the right and a vaulted parlor on the left through an archway. The room has one large window facing the front yard and could be a den or a formal living room or whatever was needed. The master suite is large with bayed windows in the front. There is a large walk-in closet next to the door and the master bath with a tub and dual sinks is adjacent to the closet. By putting these side-by-side, the main suite area is large and open. A dining room is situated between the master suite and the kitchen. It is also vaulted and has a big window on the side to bathe the room with light. The kitchen is “C”

Knowing how to get in and out of tubs and showers properly and equipping homes with necessary safety precautions can reduce senior falls, keep them out of the emergency room and possibly extend their life. According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1.6 million older adults seek emergency care each year for fall-related injuries, fractures or head trauma. In addition to potentially losing their independence, seniors 65 years old and up have a 25 percent chance of dying within six months to a year if they fall and break a hip. Seniors are vulnerable to falls for many reasons – eyesight and reflexes aren’t as razorsharp as they used to be, not to mention the balance issues posed by diabetes, heart disease, thyroid conditions and Please see FALLS, pg. 2

Making moving day easier on parents and children M

oving into a new home is certainly not child’s play. The change brings with it a lot of emotions, particularly for families moving with children. Children tend to be emotionally invested in their home, especially if it is the only home they have known. Carefully preparing them for the move, both practically and psychologically, can help ease

various medications. One of the most effective ways to preserve balance is to stay active with an exercise regimen. Ask your doctor about exercises designed to improve balance, stability and overall mobility, such as moderate yoga.

and the American Geriatrics Society advise the following bathroom safety precautions for seniors: ■ Non-slip rubber mats in front of sink, toilet and shower/bath. ■ Grab bars inside and outside of shower/bath and on either side of the toilet (these are much stronger than towel racks, which aren’t meant to support weight). ■ Bright lights that are easily accessible.

ruption. The longer kids feel secure in their own rooms, the easier the transition will be. Set up their new bedrooms first and don’t completely re-decorate their

rooms, which will help them feel like they’re back in familiar surroundings. ■ Participate: Your children are more likely to feel like they are a part of your new home if they are given the chance to help with the move, even in a small way. Ask them to carry light objects, like pillows and small toys, or to watch the family pet to make sure it does not sneak

outside amid the foot traffic. ■ Explore: After you move, help the kids discover their new neighborhood. Ask neighbors to point out the playgrounds, community centers, recreation areas and other areas important to the kids that will help make the environment seem fun and familiar.
