Are you the kind of person who likes to imagine a great vacation, a new house, or a better world? Most of us have a bit of the dreamer inside. If we’re lucky, sometimes it’s not just a fantasy.
That is the enviable place I find myself right now in the part of my day I spend at Bradley House. While there are some repairs that must be addressed immediately, most improvements will be part of a major project of renovations and expansion of the beautiful mansion that Richards M Bradley built for his bride back in 1858. We imagine a few more than the current 28 private rooms, to serve the burgeoning numbers of elders in need of care. We dream of every resident having their own bathroom, and hallways that are wide and brightly lit. We wish for a large dining room where everyone can gather and enjoy a meal, a party or a performance together. I want especially to offer the dedicated and incredibly hardworking staff proper working conditions, with an efficient layout and equipment that allows more time with residents and less trying to find what you need or make the gosh-darned copier work!
Does any of this sound familiar?
