Mission and Philosophy: Glendale Home recognizes that each resident in our nursing home has unique values, experiences, and desires. Our goal is to enhance the residents’ quality of life and treat each resident with dignity and respect.
Glendale Home, founded in 1936, has been the provider of choice to meet the needs of the residents in Schenectady County by providing skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to the citizens of our community. Our team of experienced professionals identifies the needs of our residents and assists in setting goals that reflect the background, interests, and needs of each resident.
Physicians, nurses, therapists, dieticians, social workers and all other support staff are involved from the admission process through the entire stay of the resident.
