Adrian Manor has a new transportation van! As our older model 2002 Dodge Van continued to have problems, the Adrian Healthcare Board along with Adrian Manor Management had been discussing a new van for a few months when alas, our formerly trustworthy (and rust-worthy) old van threw us a “curve” and began to decline a bit faster than we had anticipated. This required prompt attention and swift action. We then went ahead with our accelerated search and we are the proud owners of a fully paid for 2012 Dodge Caravan modified for wheelchair access and mobility.
