holiday tips for property managers

Holiday Health Awareness for Your Residents

The holiday spirit is upon us! Whether you saw it coming a mile away as mega stores immediately hoisted the fake Christmas trees after Halloween or you are just now hit by the ghost of Christmas Present as you scramble to purchase gifts for your family, one thing is for sure: you probably don’t want to get sick right now. Unfortunately this season’s temperature drop can cause serious health problems to adults and infants alike if they don’t stay warry of the cold. Keep your residents happy and healthy by reminding them to stay warm and dry this holiday season, be extra cautious in highly populated areas, and be aware if their neighbors have any food allergies.
