If you plan to be in Halifax and have a little time, Chris would love visitors. The Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre is on the corner of Summer Street and University Ave. It’s across University from the VG – Dickson building. Parking is either on Summer Street (meter parking but free on weekends) or the parking lot which is accessible from University Ave. (park for a fee but free on the weekend)
As I understand things now, the therapy sessions are finished by 3-4 pm. Visiting is good after this time. He is in room 723, bed 2 and you can call him in the evenings at 902-473-2700, and the switchboard will put your call through if you ask for Chris Cashen. The children an I plan to try and call him between 7:30 and 8pm each week night so please don’t call then.
If you don’t bring a Tim Horton’s 4X4 I can’t be held accountable for your reception by Chris. (Yes, I know it’s embarrassing to order this but I think that I have gotten all the local Tim Horton’s staff used to the request now – so you won’t get too many odd looks.)
