Seniors know from experience that life is a challenge. Many may face limited choices when deprived of complete independence by advancing age. Do you move in with your children? Do you agree to a nursing home? What options are available?
Built in 1974 as a not-for-profit Independent Living retirement community, Flushing House was one of the first to offer older adults an alternative and affordable retirement experience. As a not-for profit, Flushing House pioneered a unique living arrangement known as Congregate Living. But Flushing House’s residents don’t have to share rooms to keep costs down. They enjoy their own private, spacious apartments. They are free to come and go, to entertain family and friends and to make their own financial decisions.
In addition, Flushing House provides a wide variety of communal services to assist residents with daily tasks, such as restaurant-style dining with continental breakfast, lunch and dinner served in our beautiful dining room, housekeeping and linen services, a concierge, 24-hour security, a comprehensive activities program featuring state-of-the-art computer learning and fitness centers, arts and crafts room, concerts, movies, game nights and weekly trips in the Flushing House’s van.
Currently, Flushing House is accepting applications for two-week trial stays. The trial stay is designed for people who are considering making a move into a community setting, but are fearful of such a commitment. This offers the opportunity for people to try the community for two weeks while living in a furnished apartment. They can meet the Flushing House’s residents, enjoy the amenities and see if this is the right fit for them all at an incredible rate of $30 per night.
Space is limited. For more information on Flushing House and its trial stays, call (347) 532-3014 or (718) 752-3198.
