People Inc's Senior Housing keeps growing

Mar 24, 2008

Cleaning, mowing the lawn, paying the bills, and shoveling the endless snow... do you have a family member that has found of all of this too much? Help is available. People Inc. offers safe, affordable housing for seniors throughout Western New York. The best part is those overwhelming tasks of living in a large house and having to maintain it are a thing of the past! Your loved one's income goes farther with rental assistance, allowing seniors to better afford the things they enjoy.

People Inc.'s Senior Housing program offers rental assistance for independent people over the age of 62, who meet the federally mandated income guidelines. Rent, which includes gas, heat, and water, is based upon 30 percent of their adjusted annual income. The individual apartments are unique as each tenant adds their own personal charm and decor to their living space. There is on-site management and maintenance, on-site laundry facilities, emergency pull cords and response systems, group transportation for grocery shopping and social activities, and a community room with a full kitchen. There are also opportunities to develop new friendships! Locations include a furnished community room and kitchen for social events and a calendar of enjoyable activities. Your loved one will feel safe with the 24-hour on-call emergency services available when you need them! As you walk down the hallways of each senior housing complex, the sense of home is felt as you see wreaths on doors and welcome mats with flowers on them.

We are known in the senior services field locally as 'the agency that does the extras,' and People Inc. has won a U.S. Department of HUD National Best Practices Award for the quality of this program. There are many locations to choose from - currently accepting applications for sites in Cheektowaga, Clarence, Lackawanna, Blasdell, and South Buffalo. Future Senior Housing buildings are scheduled for Hamburg, Lockport, and Wheatfield. For more information for your self, relative, or friend, call People Inc. at 716.634.8132.
