- Are there set visiting hours at Schulman and Schachne?
Visiting hours are open but we ask that you do not visit too early or too late so as not to disturb other residents. The one restriction on visiting is children under 18 years old are not allowed on the units. However, we have patient lounges located on the first floors of both the Schulman and Schachne buildings as well as gardens that the children and residents spend time together.
