President and Chief Executive Officer James M. Boles, Ed.D.; People Inc. Chief Operating Officer Rhonda Frederick; community leaders; and People Inc. Senior Living staff and tenants will be in attendance.

Why: After trying unsuccessfully to develop a senior living apartment building in the Town of Orchard Park, People Inc. worked closely with the Village of Springville and surrounding areas to provide affordable and safe senior living for Springville and its adjacent communities. “Due to the unfortunate controversy in the Town of Orchard Park, we took the $6 million dollar award to the Village of Springville where they greeted us with open arms,” said Rhonda Frederick, People Inc. chief operating officer. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Springville, as well as surrounding businesses and especially seniors who want to stay in an area where they raised their families.” 

People Inc. is responding to the needs of a growing elderly population within the community with its 18th Senior Living location. Located in Springville, People Inc. Orchard Senior Living is home to independent seniors, age 62 and up, who meet the federally mandated income guidelines. People Inc. Orchard Senior Living includes 42 one–bedroom apartments that are handicap adaptable, with a unit specifically designed for individuals who are vision/hearing impaired.  

People Inc.’s Senior Living Apartments offer monthly rent based on the tenants income, which includes some utilities. To help families feel at ease, there is a day-time manager and live-in caretaker for building emergencies. The one bedroom apartments include a kitchen with appliances and are small pet friendly. Case managers are available to provide tenants assistance with referrals to services. There is a community room and laundry facilities located in each building. Group transportation to grocery stores and a variety of activities are provided for tenants who wish to participate.
