Grandparents and Grandkids: How Oasis Pool Enclosures Offer Year-Round Fun and Safety
Are you a grandparent looking for ways to spend quality time with your grandkids? Look no further than your own backyard. With over 70 million grandparents in the United States, spending time with family is one of the biggest perks of getting older. According to the AARP, the number of grandparents has increased by 24% in the past 20 years.
One of the favorite activities for grandparents is spending time with their grandkids. Whether it’s sharing a meal, watching a movie, shopping, or reading, grandparents welcome any opportunity to interact with the younger generation. At least half of all grandparents have exercised or played some type of sport with their grandchildren.
A popular activity for both grandparents and grandkids is swimming. In the United States, there are about 10.7 million residential swimming pools, and having a pool is a big attraction for grandkids of all ages. Swimming is the fourth most popular sport or activity. But winter months and bad weather can put a damper on the poolside fun. Unfortunately, no matter how good grandma’s cookies may be, no pool time is one less reason that grandkids want to visit.
Luckily, there’s a solution to this problem: pool enclosures. The Oasis Pool Enclosure offers a permanent structure to surround your swimming pool, providing a number of benefits. The main benefit is that having an enclosed pool means you can invite your grandchildren to come for a swim any time of the year.
Pool enclosures not only provide year-round access to the pool, but they also add an extra layer of safety for children. As grandparents, you want to be sure your grandchildren don’t go into the pool area when there are no adults to supervise. The pool enclosure can be securely locked to prevent unsupervised visits, which is essential because the second leading cause of accidental death in children is drowning.
Grandparents won’t hear the words, “I’m bored,” when there is an enclosed swimming pool. Nearly one in four grandparents provide childcare for parents about once a week, and the swimming pool gives the grandkids something to do – and it’s good for them too! Kids are becoming less active, and the swimming pool is a great way to get them moving while having fun.
Adding a pool enclosure to your backyard not only benefits your family, but it can also increase the value of your home. In areas with warm climates, a pool can add significant value to your home, and a pool enclosure can make it more appealing to buyers.
So, what are you waiting for? With a pool enclosure, you can enjoy quality time with your grandkids, improve safety, increase your home’s value, and provide a fun and healthy activity for your family. Contact us today to get started.
