May 2017: Senior Living Section

All the top senior living businesses in the Capital Region.

The Furniture House
1254 Highway 9P, Saratoga Springs 1060 Route 9, Queensbury
The Furniture House has two great locations to serve you: our flagship store at 1254 Highway 9P on Saratoga Lake, and now at Sutton’s Marketplace, 1060 Route 9, Queensbury. As we get older, our family structure changes. We downsize our homes. We want comfort and convenience in a tiny package. We look for other ways to be space efficient. The Furniture House specializes in American-made, hard to find pieces to fill these needs. We have Murphy beds, coffee tables that turn to dining tables, lift recliners, Krypton fabrics and multi-purpose home furnishings offering additional storage. Our design staff can assist you in this process and our delivery team is here for you! If you haven’t been to the Furniture House, where have you been? The Furniture House—the unusual as usual.

Shaker Pointe at Carondelet
1 Bell Tower Drive, Watervliet

Ingersoll Place Assisted Living
3359 Consaul Road, Niskayuna
370.4419; ingersollplace.org
Since 1924, Ingersoll Place has been recognized as an essential provider of residential services for older adults. Known for decades as the Ingersoll Memorial Home for Aged Men, the opening of a new facility in 2008 allowed for an expansion of services, including a special needs/memory care unit. Licensed by the NYS Department of Health, Ingersoll Place has 72 apartments, all with private bathrooms with walk-in showers. Monthly rental fees are all-inclusive with no additional charges for meals, transportation, medication management and assistance with daily activities including dressing, bathing, laundry and housekeeping. Tours are available 7 days a week.

Advanced Audiology Services
27 Lower Hudson Avenue, Green Island
270.5802; advancedaudiologysvcs.net
It can be quite daunting, not to mention frustrating, trying to make a decision about which hearing aid to buy. This is where the services of the audiologist can be instrumental in achieving a successful outcome. The audiologist’s role in selection is to guide and advise the consumer regarding options such as style and level of technology. One should wind up with “the best hearing aid for me.” Carrying many brands does not necessarily translate into an advantage to the consumer. More useful information might be the answer to “What kinds of results do you typically get from the hearing aids that you dispense?  Are your patients usually satisfied with the outcome?”

691.1560; TheWesleyCommunity.org
