Walden Place offers an active lifestyle with premier services and amenities-- in a warm family, oriented community.

We realize that you are looking for a community that offers the services of a well respected Assisted Living community, but we want to offer you more. We want to preserve your independence, offer companionship, and honor your privacy. You'll have the freedom to hop on the Walden Place shuttle & remain active, find a companion who likes to play cards, sing or even dance during a live entertainment performance, or try a new recipe! You'll find friendships and other people to visit with, if you choose. However, your private apartment home decorated with your personal treasures will offer a sanctuary of quiet and relaxation. The choice is yours...and once you decide to join the Walden Place family, you too will say, 'Why did I wait so long?'

Personal care assistance includes step-by step cueing, bathing, hygiene assistance, grooming, and incontinence management.

Well-trained staff members care deeply and foster independence by offering purposeful activities that promote self-esteem and creativity. Music therapy and pet therapy programs promote positive emotions & visitors are encouraged to participate.

  • Policies are not adequately explained.

    My father was a recent resident of Walden Place in Cortland, NY. We were pleased with his care during his stay there. The problem arose when my father fell and broke his hip. He required surgery and was in intensive care for a week. During that week it became clear that he would not qualify to return to Walden Place. We gave notice and removed his belongings on November 9, 2018. We were told by one staff member that we would be required to continue to pay for his room through December 9, 2018 even though for medical reasons he would not be allowed to return. When we questioned this policy another staff member told us we would not be required to continue to pay if the resident had vacated due to medical issues. My father has subsequently passed away and the family is being pressured into continued payment through 12/9/18. We were never told that a resident would need to schedule a fall, hip surgery and subsequent death to assure that adequate notice was given when vacating a room.
