Rose Court needs volunteers to bring ladies (and gentlemen) to the Salon at Rose Court for their hair appointments. This involves pushing them to the salon in a wheelchair and back to their room when they are finished. The stylists are not allowed to transport customers and sometimes the aides are too busy. Imagine how you would feel if you couldn’t get to your hair appointment!!!
Grab bars have begun to be installed in all bathrooms in all apartments in OT and MC. This is considered a retro fit and no one will be charged for having shower bars installed.
Not Getting Notices?
Some people have mentioned that they asked for notices to be emailed instead of being placed in their cubby, but they are not getting them in either place. Until a remedy can be found it was suggested that they remove green sticker on their cubby so they will receive written notices.
It’s a good idea to wear your name tag every time you leave your apartment. Accidents happen and if you have identification it helps everyone who is trying to help you.
Do you have unneeded medical equipment that someone else could use? Contact Charlotte H.
You can buy food at the Coeburn Cafe by paying a la carte in cash or asking for resident charge or using your flex plan to buy a whole meal. Make sure you tell the cashier which you want to do before she rings you up.
DO NOT put your recycling items into plastic bags. They must be placed loosely in the recycling containers or in PAPER bags or (in the case of large cardboard boxes) broken down flat and placed up against wall.
call General services
General Services will begin installing grab bars by the beginning of February. They will be installed in showers and tubs in both bathrooms and there will be NO CHARGE for this service.
Air vents can be moved so air flow is directed out or to the side instead of down
