Summary: Caring for ‘At Risk’ Residents in Chicago AND Florida Buildings

READ  Obscure Credit Score Facts from Liz Pulliam Weston

Media Outlet: The Cooperator

Deadline: 7:00 PM EST – 23 September

Query: Who looks out for ‘at-risk’ or ‘special needs’ residents in a building when property managers need to create their emergency action/evacuation plan? (Elderly, ill or other physically compromised folks.) I’m looking to interview CHICAGO-AREA AND SOUTH FLORIDA ONLY property managers to find out a) what happens if there’s an emergency in their building — what do they do? b) what training do you give to building workers on these residents? How might a managing agent deal with a mentally handicapped resident with aging parents, for example, or a situation where a young kid is caring for younger siblings while a single mom or dad is at work. Looking for anecdotes!!!! Requirements: Again, Chicago based area only AND South Florida only. I can use property managers, attorneys who can tell me what’s legal to ask about these residents, anyone who is familiar with the American Disabilities Act, etc. Even a family with a special needs person who has a special story to tell about their management.
