Such busy days!

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

I live in a subsidized senior apartment building. The owners finally had us designated "smoke free." Now they get more money from HUD and are fixing up our building.

In preparation we have been cleaning sorting, recycling, donating... Drawers, cabinets, closets, carpeting...we are cleaning all. Or at Ieast I am.

Starting in about six weeks we are getting new stainless appliances (including stoves with built in microwaves), new tubs, bath sinks, and lighting. Some apartments will have new windows, carpeting, thermostats,etc.

All the effort we are expending is made more by the fact that our maintenance man was fired a couple months back, and a new one has not started.

Our Community Room and other public areas will be redone. We will also have new keyless entries.

Our few smokers will need to use their cars or leave the property to indulge. It will be worth it...even for them.

    Subsidized senior apartments sound very useful and pragmatic, however I know how difficult it can be getting the care, attention and upgrades we all like to have within our living arrangements.

    Good luck in adjusting and keep speaking out to management about what works well and what doesn't!
