Summer Is In Full Bloom

A dozen raised bed gardens are overflowing with flowers and vegetables this week.

Sunshine mixed with a generous amount of rain the last few weeks has resulted in bumper crops for our residents who love to grow their own plants.

The raised beds are new this year, constructed by our maintenance department.

The owners of Prestwick Chase at Saratoga are constantly updating and adding new features for our residents to enjoy.

A year ago, it was patio dining and a terrace with comfortable seating for outdoor gatherings in a welcoming atmosphere.

Earlier this year, the fitness center was upgraded with new treadmills and stationary bicycles to replace equipment that was very well used and ready for a rest.

As a family owned and operated community, there is no corporate board of directors or other outside force slowing the progress of ideas being brought into reality.

If you’re looking for great retirement living, come see all that Prestwick Chase at Saratoga has to offer.

Tours are available seven days a week. Call 518-584-7766 or 1-800-298-5661.

Breakfast With Friends At Prestwick Chase

It’s Monday morning and more than a dozen guys are gathered around five tables pulled together for Men’s Breakfast at Prestwick Chase at Saratoga.
The topics this morning include Saturday’s running of the Belmont Stakes and California Chrome’s defeat in the run for the Triple Crown.
The morning’s cook, Heather, has prepared bacon and eggs as the $1.99 special for the men, although I noticed at least one diner is being good and having his oatmeal.
It’s not really about the food, they tell me. It’s the camaraderie that brings them to the breakfast table every Monday.
I hear the same thing from the ladies who gather on Saturday mornings for Women’s Breakfast in the Corner Cupboard café.
Prestwick Chase is a community. We certainly don’t call it an “old folks home.”
Sure, we have folks who have celebrated A LOT of birthdays, but we strive to keep them happy and among the activities is a weekly opportunity for breakfast with friends.
If you would like to sample the good food and feeling of friendship at Prestwick Chase, give us a call and we’ll show you around and then treat you to a nice breakfast or lunch.
I’m Kathy Bowen and my partner is Wendy Haggerty. Our number is 518-584-7766 and tours are available seven days a week.

Senior Living in the Country Minutes From Broadway, Saratoga Springs

Country living this week means baby animals and birds!

Prestwick Chase at Saratoga is located on 120 gorgeous acres just minutes from downtown Saratoga Springs.

Our beautiful campus features ponds, fields and woods as well as the wildlife that goes with rural living.

Today, we are celebrating the births of twin fawns in the high grass visible from our beautiful piazza that features two stories of windows. Earlier in the week, another doe had a single fawn.

For several days our residents have enjoyed watching a mother duck leading 12, yes I said 12, ducklings. They have waddled from the pond into the fields and back again. There is much debate whether these ducklings all belong to Daisy (Duck) or if she has adopted some for an unknown reason.

As spring rolls into summer, we know we will be seeing many magnificent creatures, young and old. I am personally waiting for the return of a heron that has taken up summer residence to watch the fish in C Wing Pond the past two years.

Whatever the time of year, at Prestwick Chase, we believe you could find it to be,

The Best Season Of Your Life!
