“Where Seniors Are Most and Least Financially Secure”
Lexington ranked in the top five cities where seniors are most financially secure in a study done by SmartAsset.com. According to the study, “Only 26.15% of seniors in Lexington, Kentucky are burdened by housing costs, the third-lowest rate for this metric in the study. The city doesn’t perform as well when it comes to the average senior retirement income (ranking 48th out of 100 at $50,227). But, 56.3% of seniors do have at least some private retirement income, placing the city eighth for this metric in the study.”
Duck, Duck, Goose!
Residents at Sayre Christian Village Friendship Towers had the opportunity to try out chicken, duck, and goose eggs. Life Enrichment team member Marie Wilson provided farm fresh chicken, duck and goose eggs, as well as store bought chicken eggs. After tasting the eggs, it was clear which chicken eggs were farm fresh (and the favorite of the residents). For many of the residents, it was the first time seeing or tasting a goose and duck egg. They were surprised to see how large the goose egg was! It was a great opportunity to try something new!
An Apple a Day
Preston Greens residents celebrated National Apple Day by making mini baked apple crisps.
