I just finished taping an interview for my friend & colleague, Michael Cohen. Michael is founder of “Must Have Play” which designs and builds playgrounds for seniors. Michael is creating a short video to explain his work. Think about it: spaces that are designed to encourage wellness, movement, improve balance and strength. Environments which create opportunities for social interaction, to benefit from and enjoy fresh air and sunshine! Do you know that playgrounds for seniors are very popular around the world? In fact, in Japan they are referred to as “Nursing Care Prevention Parks.” Perhaps that’s a way of viewing these to garner public funding and support for these in the U.S.
