Condo living

I am probably one of the first to tell you that as a blind person, there are many advantages to condo living. For one thing, I do not have to worry about shoveling snow, raking leaves, or putting out garbage for the garbage collector to pick up. However, there are a few things that I constantly have to battle with.

The biggest thing is the challenge of keeping up with notices. I have to make sure that I know what is being put up on the notice board and in the elevators. I have had to work very hard to convince the management office to email me any notices that they are going to put up. For the most part, it works but every now and then I have to remind them.

As of now, our management office communicates with tenants via the hard copy route so it is up to me to help them understand that I need to have my communication in e-text format. A job which I do not mind undertaking because it becomes a win-win situation for everyone.
