Living options

We have single or double bedrooms within homes throughout Schenectady County. There are two story, single story, and barrier free options. Residential houses range in size from 3 – 9 persons. All homes have 24 hour staffing and include all the amenities that any home would have.

Our supported apartments are all single occupancy and are located across Schenectady County.

Levels of support

We serve individuals with all levels of abilities. We provide well trained staff 24 hours a day in our homes. Many of the individuals we support help maintain their home by doing laundry, cleaning, making dinner. They are also actively engaged in their community attending local events, shopping, and meeting with neighbors. We provide as much support as the individual needs. We also provide clinical supports which help individuals live as independently as possible.

In the apartments, staff visit each consumer 1 - 7 times per week (dependent of the needs of the consumer) to assist them with budgeting, banking, shopping, some medication oversight, and maintaining their apartments. Each visit is based on the individual’s needs.
