When maintaining a home became an overwhelming burden, I decided to change my lifestyle and made the move to Glen Eddy. Instead of chores, there are many activities to fill my days and new friends to gather with at dinner. The apartments and cottages are comfortable and the staff is caring and excellent. The greater community offers diverse activities. Glen Eddy is an excellent choice for an independent, worry-free lifestyle.

We have been residents of Glen Eddy in Niskayuna for approximately three years. Our primary interest in moving to a senior living facility was having someone else take on some of the cooking, cleaning, and upkeep chores that were our sole responsibility living by ourselves in a single family home. Glen Eddy has, in fact, provided the supportive living arrangements we were looking for an much more. Meals, rides, entertainment, and home maintenance are all provided or arranged by friendly staff members who make a real effort to accommodate Glen Eddy residents. Thanks to their efforts, we have in the time and energy to fully enjoy life and each other. It alsi must be said that living in a place with others who have similar needs and interests has been an added plus. We've made many friends and become part of the place we now call home.

Welcoming place: Residents and Staff

I moved to the Glen Eddy in mid-July 2021. From the beginning, I have felt welcomed by both residents and staff. My apartment is just the right size for me. The dining room is a great place to meet and socialize with other residents. There are a lot of exercise options, a variety of activities, and interesting presentations. There are also opportunities "off-campus" including a recent trip to the Edith Wharton home in Lenox, MA, to which we traveled by a Glen Eddy bus. The residents are friendly and welcoming to new (and other) residents. The staff is helpful and responsive, eager to make this place my home.

A smooth time getting moved in and situated even with the Covid mess

They seem to have handled Covid very well. They had somebody come on-site to get them all vaccinated. I get an email newsletter, so I think the communications are good. A lot has been shut down due to Covid, but my loved ones are starting to get more involved as things open back up. They've started offering Mahjong and arts and crafts and things. Meals were being delivered, and my loved ones got a lot of desserts, which they liked. With the dining room opening back up, the concierge is planning on seating the residents with different people at meals so they can meet more people.

The Glen Eddy has been a nurturing and loving community for my mom over the past 14 years. Mom's good friends there and the various activities and groups keep her engaged and vibrant - even during the Covid pandemic. And when she wants privacy and quiet, she has her lovely, well-kept apartment. The Glen Eddy has been for mom exactly what my sister and I hoped it would be ... a blessing!
