Seeing is believing: Tour a Montessori school

Adults often have a difficult time believing that 30 children, who are not quite three-years-old through kindergarten age, can all be in the same classroom successfully learning independently, with a teacher, or in a small group. The Montessori School is inviting families with their children to visit the school on Mondays during the month of October to see for themselves how this learning experience is possible.

Parents or guardians should call the school at 215-295-1170 or e-mail the Head of School, Mary Ann Jackson, at mmaammjj@aol.com to reserve a date for the tour. Tours begin at 9:15am and usually last about an hour.

Homefix Custom Remodeling helps seniors age gracefully

by June Portnoy

The daily routine of bathing that most people take for granted can be very dangerous for seniors, many of whom fall while climbing over the high step-in entries to bathtubs and shower stalls. Some seniors become so fearful of falling that they avoid bathing on a regular basis.

Fortunately, Homefix Custom Remodeling (HCR) has helped make bathing a safe, enjoyable experience for seniors. Brad Farnin, a Bucks County resident, explains that after working as a Walk-In Tub Specialist at corporate companies for six years, he recognized that they charged more than necessary for senior-friendly bathing products that were so essential for the elderly to bathe.

As a result, Brad recently partnered with HCR, a home improvement company headquartered in Baltimore. In business for over 25 years, HCR is Better Business Bureau accredited with an A+ rating, along with having received multiple Angie’s List Super Service Awards.
