Resident Lead Groups at Prestwick Chase

Prestwick Chase at Saratoga has a number of activities on the calendar each month that are completely handled by our residents, for our residents.
A monthly newsletter, known as The Chase, Tuesday night BINGO, The Book Chat Club, Poetry Readings and various card and other games are among events conducted under the leadership of our residents.
For the past three years, Prestwick Chase CEO Fred McNeary, Jr. has presented awards to some of the outstanding residents who dedicate their time and talents to endeavors that benefit their fellow “Chasers.”
This year’s recipients were Marilynn Peterson, the guiding librarian of our in-house Penfield Library, and Samuel Cahan, leader of the monthly Book Chat Club. Marilynn is also involved it the book club selections each month.
Sam and Marilynn each received a certificate of appreciation and a crystal plaque for display.
The award is named in memory of former Chase Editor Jeanne Schreiber who was an avid gardener and writer who contributed much to Prestwick Chase while she was a resident.
Previous winners include the current managing editor of The Chase newsletter, Marian Potter, and the coordinator of resident gardens, Cathy Bungard.

Prestwick Chase could add years to your life!

Study after study show that older folks living with other people usually live longer, healthier lives than most of those who live alone.
On Sunday night’s CBS “60 Minutes” program, two segments were devoted to a senior community in California that is now the subject of a three-decades long study into longevity and spry behavior.
Men and women over the age of 90 are now the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, according to the national Census Bureau.
“Because of increases in life expectancy at older ages, people 90 and older now comprise 4.7 percent of the older population (age 65 and older), as compared with only 2.8 percent in 1980. By 2050, this share is likely to reach 10 percent,” the Bureau reports.
Studies prove, the senior citizens in the best health often spend time with other people sharing stories and laughs and even a drink or two.
At Prestwick Chase, we can provide all three.
Meet new friends, share your life stories, laugh and have a glass of wine or a cocktail and may you…
Live Every Day of Your Life!!

Happy Birthday To You!

The last Wednesday of each month features our birthday celebration for residents who have gained another year of wisdom. All residents are invited to the party with cake, coffee and tea served as well as a chorus of well wishes.

Meet and Greet

Each month the new residents of Prestwick Chase at Saratoga are treated to a “get to know you” breakfast with their neighbors.

The New Resident Breakfast is just one of the events held each month offering residents the opportunity to mix, mingle and find new friends with similar interests.

Our “Wing Dings” bring residents of individual wings in the main building and from our cottages to have a cup of coffee or tea while sharing experiences with the people who live in close proximity.

Each Friday, the Director’s Social is a cocktail party with live music providing a festive end to the “work week,” even though our retirees didn’t have to fight traffic or deadlines.

I guess we’re celebrating the lack of traffic and deadlines!

Why You Need to Move to Saratoga Springs – Broadway – Prestwick Chase

From The Saratogian – “Travel + Leisure refers to Broadway as “a Main Street on steroids.” Philip Levitas, owner of Plum Dandy Frozen Yogurt and Toppings sees the bustle of Broadway every day. “Saratoga’s a great town,” he said. “It’s a big town, but a small community. Everyone is energetic and active, and a strong student population adds to the diversity.”
