While visiting the island you may notice that there aren’t too many nursing homes it’s because the elderly are usually taken care of by their children as well as their brothers and sisters. The grandparents take care of their grandchildren. All the grandkids playing together afterschool, learning together and having special treats made for them by their grandparents. Grandads teaching the boys how to fish while grandmothers show to the little girls their secret recipes. It might feel like you have fallen into an ancient era and simpler times but that doesn’t mean that modernity hasn’t reach this paradise yet, it’s just that it knows how to hold on to the greatest of its oldest values and provides the best of both worlds for everyone.
