Throughout its 18-year history, Quarry Hill has been committed to being an active and welcoming member of the greater Midcoast community. Part of that, of course, is keeping our neighbors in the know about developments on our campus that could affect them. I write to you today about just such a change.
On October 13, and continuing until further notice, Quarry Hill’s Route 1 and Camden Street entrances are closed to vehicular traffic. All those coming and going from our campus by car or truck—including residents, care team members, delivery people, etc.— are asked to use our Union Street entrance instead, which is located diagonally across from the Camden Hammond Lumber store.
We’ve made this change primarily to minimize the use of Quarry Hill Road, the private road that bisects our campus, as a shortcut from Elm Street (Route 1) to Union Street, and vice versa. Traffic of this sort disrupts the quiet enjoyment of our campus by our residents, the vast majority of whom are in their late 60s and beyond, and, in some cases creates a safety hazard for those trying to navigate our roads and walkways on foot.
However, even as we make this change, please know that Quarry Hill remains as open as ever in all the important ways. True to our mission, we continue to celebrate the unique gifts of our seniors and do everything we can to see that they’re cared for and protected.
If you have questions or concerns about the upcoming entrance closures, I invite you to call me at 207-301-6275 or get in touch with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
