TURKEY DAY

Residents of Prestwick were treated to a fantastic turkey day dinner. There was so much that the chefs made sure everyone went home with left overs. The tables had decorations and the Chef’s while carving the turkeys in front of the residents gave them a little history lesson on where the turkeys came from. There was much laughter and great conversations. We wanted them to feel as if it was a “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” by setting up long tables. there was plenty of coffee and pies afterwards to select from. It truly was a wonderful day. Thank you to all the staff, chefs and residents who made this dinner on thanksgiving such a warm and wonderful celebration.

TALBOTS CLASS ACT

Talbots opened their doors early just for Prestwick Chase residents. The Manager of the store Colleen Verro, opened her store at 10:00am in the Wilton Mall on a Sunday, 2 hours prior to normal hours just to help keep residents safe while shopping. They had gift bags for our residents waiting, even sign posted welcoming them to the store. This was so greatly appreciated as it allowed our residents to be able to safely shop with no real exposure to public early in the day. It is these wonderful kind gestures that everyone appreciates so much. Thank you again to Talbots and Colleen Verro, Store Manager for going well above and beyond in customer service and hospitality. THANK YOU!!

MUSEUM OF RACING

Residents of Prestwick went out on a beautiful 70′ degree day to go tour the Saratoga Racing Museum. The tour gave the rich history of premier horse racing in Saratoga. There were many wonderful displays, including colorful jerseys of many past riders, starting gates and statues dedicated to famous winning horses. Thank you to Saratoga Racing Museum for hosting our group and to all the staff that made this outing possible.

CRUISE IN STYLE

Residents of Prestwick Chase recently were given a tremendous cruise in style early fall surprise. Prestwick Chase now owns for its residents a tour bus!! The sleek vehicle has reclining seats, flat screen T.V’s, bathroom and has the ability when boarding to lower itself right down to the ground to allow those with physical challenges to simply step right on without difficulty. The Prestwick Chase Touring Bus also allows more residents to participate in outings and activities as the original seating on previous shuttle was 13 and now has expanded to 40!! Another great perk is all the extra storage below the seating. This makes it very easy to be able to store luggage, walkers and any items that normally could clutter the inside when going out on activities.

Prestwick Chase has often been referred to on T.V, talk radio and other social media platforms as a cruise ship on land. Well we love that label so much that now the cruise ship on land has a mini cruiser for its residents to travel in complete luxury, comfort and safety. We are constantly seeking to provide the best services for our family community and to always go a step beyond anyone attempting to be our competitors. Leading by example and listening to the desires of our community is what constantly drives us to be the best.

This particular activity was with a group out to the Olde Bryan Inn Restaurant here in Saratoga Springs. Even with masks on you could see the smiles and excitement to know that everyone was going to enjoy a very smooth ride. We look forward too many more outings in the near future. Leaf Peak Season is just around the corner!
