Why Repairs are so necessary in Senior Housing

For seniors with mobility problems, life without an elevator can mean much more than just being stuck on a single floor. It can mean missing out on vital activities like doctor appointment, shopping trips, and other necessary social engagements.
For several resident at Juliette Fowler Communities, a broken elevator meant going almost a week without delivered meals and fresh laundry. Luckily residents spoke out. They got in touch with the local news and were able to pressure on management and the elevator service provider. They were victorious and by the following Monday, the elevator was fixed

Update: Because Tenants spoke out, they saw a working elevator the Tuesday after the story came out!
