2016 Elder Care Tour

For the fourth year in a row, Lexington Family Magazine will offer an exciting giveaway contest to attendees of the 16th annual Elder Care Tour in November.

The Elder Care Tour has a new date – Sunday, Nov. 13, 1:30-5 p.m.

The magazine is giving away two Gaylord Opryland Vacation Packages, including two nights accommodation for two, and two tickets to “ICE!,” featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

The Country Christmas package also includes two tickets to “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas;” Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers Christmas Dinner show; Treasures for the Holidays and Delta Riverboats inside the hotel.

To enter to win, merely visit one of the retirement communities that will have an open house for the Tour on Sunday, Nov. 13, 1:30-5 p.m.

To see the names of the communities with directions and descriptions of each, please see our Elder Care Tour Map at the bottom of this page.

The Tour not only provides a chance to win these exciting prizes, it’s also an opportunity to educate yourself about housing options for older adults in Central Kentucky in a relaxed, unpressured atmosphere.

The Tour is designed for older adults, their adult children and other caregivers.

All too often, older adults and Sandwich Generation folks find themselves forced by crisis to make immediate decisions about their own care, the care of a spouse or the care of an aging parent.

What if you knew ahead of time what facilities and services were available for yourself or your loved ones?

What if you knew where you’d like to retire or where you could go for rehabilitation services?

The Tour can provide those answers. So mark your calendar and plan to visit one or more retirement communities on Sunday, Nov. 13, 1:30-5 p.m.
