for a local advisor

Schaffer Heights is a senior housing community located among the quiet hills of Schenectady, Schenectady County, New York. Our residents enjoy nature trails that give access to the natural beauty that surrounds our community, and the entire city. Schenectady has all of the accommodations visiting family members could ever need, and we take pride in how impressed guests are at the services we offer.

Schaffer Heights uses our Senior Transitions and SUN programs to make the process of moving to our community easier. Our staff also takes time with each resident to learn their needs and develop personalized approaches to each resident. Since we are located in downtown Schenectady, we can offer our residents access to shopping, entertainment and planned transportation to all of their medical appointments. Our staff utilizes the resources available to help residents to develop lifestyles that meet their needs, while offering care programs that are compassionate and comprehensive.

We enhance life at Schaffer Heights by offering amenities such as:

  • Access to assistance programs such as HEAP and senior employment opportunities
  • Onsite security available 24-hours a day
  • A huge community room where residents gather
  • Well-maintained outdoor walkways and courtyards that offer a getaway from the city

At Schaffer Heights, our goal is to help each resident to enjoy an independent lifestyle, while making sure to care for their needs. Our staff works hard to maintain that balance between wants and needs, and our residents let us know that our community succeeds in making life a wonderful thing.
