Tour helps seniors find best fit

Local facilities present options at ‘parade’

— On the other hand, Loudonville Home for Adults has three different options of a memory care facility, traditional assisted living and enhanced assisted living.

“We really individualize the care and services for each of our residences. It doesn’t matter what building they’re in, we really take the time to know them as they’re coming in. It’s homey and not institutional at all,” Lois Bol, director of admission at Loudonville Home for Adults, said.

The tour of each residence includes discussion and food, and possibly some activity. Pratt said the first Senior Parade of Homes in Schenectady earlier this year was extremely successful, especially because of all the food at each stop.

“By the end of the Schenectady tour, everybody was really full, joking how they had eaten all day long,” Pratt said. “They had had fun being a nice sized group. They got a really pleasant feeling for the day.”

For only a $5 registration fee, Pratt hopes to fill the 20-person bus before the trip.

“It’s very smart to be educated on your options. It’s an educational experience as well. Each senior will leave with information on what they can and cannot do in terms of senior living,” Pratt said.
