March 3, 2017
Alterations to the corridor between the Hadley House Dining Room and Abingdon House will begin on Monday, March 6. The sitting area by Hadley House Dining Room will be closed and the piano will be stored until Manchester House is completed, when the piano will be relocated to that Living Room.
On March 13 and 14, electrical service will be temporarily interrupted throughout Hadley House for short periods of time. The electrical contractor will be moving the circuits, one at a time, from one panel to another, causing brief outages.
The Health Services Activity Room will close on March 23; activities will be scheduled in other locations. Please refer to the March Activities Calendar for specific information about alternative locations.
Shingle installation on Manchester House will begin as soon as the shingles are delivered to the worksite.
Work will continue for another couple of weeks on the Hadley House roof, creating an increased noise level. Shingles will be installed in early March.
The main entrance into Health Services has been temporarily closed and will remain closed for about four weeks. Visitors to Hadley House arriving from the visitors’ parking lot should enter through the temporary entrance just to the left of the closed main entrance. Those who need wheelchair access, should use the Team Member parking lot and enter through Abingdon House’s Living Room door.
The Beauty Salon located in Health Services will close for renovation on March 20. That salon is expected to re-open around May 1 Beauty services will continue to be available in the Beauty Salon on the first floor, where hours will be extended. Extended hours will be listed in the “Whistler” and on TouchTown TV.
Please use the Abingdon House laundry room while the Hadley House laundry room is unavailable.
There will be limited parking in the Health Services visitor lot on certain days over the next few weeks.
