Senior Events in Middleton & Madison WI

Leading by Example for Long-Term Care

Health care representatives from Obihiro, Japan (Madison’s sister city) visited Attic Angel Community for a second year in a row for a firsthand look at quality senior care in the United States.

Specifically, the group seeks a deeper look into the way Attic Angel offers a full continuum of care, provides a sense of community, tends to the logistics and quality of operations and keeps a handle on costs. Planned in addition to a meeting about independent living services programs in Madison, the Attic Angel visit is the only one to a senior care facility, making Attic Angel a leader for sharing best practices.

Madison and Obihiro have been sister cities since 2006. Two of the visitors – Dr. Ken Hasagawa, CEO of Toukeikai Hospital, and Mr. Takeshi Sanuki, secretary of the sister city organization in Obihiro, have visited Attic Angel previously. This year, Dr. Hasagawa wanted to introduce two of his top staffers to the possibilities for improving senior care in Japan. The four men are pictured with Jo Oyama-Miller, board president of Madison-Obihiro Sister Cities Inc., and Derek Buckley, VP/operations of Attic Angel Community.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
