Seniors can look at housing options on tour

A tour of housing options for seniors will be hosted on Friday, May 18 by Leelanau County Senior Services and Alliance for Senior Housing.

A tour by bus is designed to educate older people looking toward future housing.

“We visit different types of homes including independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing homes,” said Connie Hintsala, owner of the Alliance for Senior Housing. “Not only do we have a good time on the bus, but participants will be offered good food, have a chance to win a door prize, and most importantly receive great information about cost of facilities, funding options and VA benefits when it comes to housing.”

The tour will begin at 9 a.m. at Leelanau County Senior Services, which is located in the county Government Center in Suttons Bay Township. Stops will include MediLodge of Leelanau — formerly Tendercare, Cedar Creek Commons, Orchard Creek Healthcare and Effie’s Assisted Living in Leland.

The tour is free but registration is required and can be made by calling Senior Services at 256-8121.

Alliance for Senior Housing LLC, is a free senior housing placement service that guides older adults through the maze of housing opportunities.
