Albany County Nursing Home and Department of Residential Health Care Facilities

Our Mission:

The Department of Residential Health Care Facilities provides excellence in long term care services to the people of Albany County and surrounding areas. The Department will provide a nurturing atmosphere staffed by qualified and compassionate individuals who are able to offer innovative health care through complex medical services and a comprehensive approach. The Department's vision is a community integrated health care continuum in which every individual is a valued member.

Our Facilities:

We operate as a skilled nursing facility providing comprehensive clinical programming to those we are privileged to serve. The Albany County Nursing Home offers a panoply of services including 24-hour skilled nursing care; physical, occupational, respiratory, and speech therapies; nutritional programs developed and overseen by registered dietitians; social services; recreational activities; clinic services; psychological services; staff physicians; spiritual care and programs; volunteer programs; as well as the daily amenities one would expect such as housekeeping and laundry service. 

We are currently undergoing an $80 million renovation project. This historic modernization project began in October 2017 and is expected to be complete by the fall of 2020. The new facilities will be increased by 77,000 square feet to expand common areas; provide private rooms and make them more accessible on the first floor; and feature energy efficient equipment and lighting.

In October 2018, Albany County formally accepted the 2018 Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) for our commitment to improving services for local seniors and residents with disabilities. The award recognizes localities making clear efforts to bring a higher quality of care to its people based on measurable targets. Albany County was one of only four facilities throughout New York State to be honored with the Bronze Award for 2018 and only 37 in total have received the award.
