We’re committed to Recovery and Rehabilitation

The pride of Schenectady Center is our reputation for amazing physical, occupational and speech therapy. Helping our short term residents return to full independence sooner and more completely drives this team to excellence. And keeping our residents physically fit promotes a longer, healthier, happier life.

We offer therapy six days a week in a state of the art facility where our team of professionals employ the latest techniques and equipment to achieve startling results. And each participant works one-on-one with their therapist during each session. Every patient has a custom plan developed just for them. That plan considers your doctor’s instructions, your pre-surgical condition or physical abilities when you arrive, your post-surgical condition, individual goals, tolerance for discomfort during therapy, personal attitude, and more.

The rewards of therapy, even when it’s difficult, are priceless and we make every effort to see that therapy sessions are productive yet enjoyable. At Schenectady Center, we “work the whole patient.” We do more than the focused rehabilitation prescribed by your doctor. We work with each patient to improve muscle tone and strength, joint mobility, posture, cardio-vascular and pulmonary function, mobility, and pain relief. And we make sure that our patients regain as many of the skills they’ll need for independent living as possible.

We never lose sight of the fact that this facility is the home of 240 people, little different from a mid-sized apartment building.

We encourage residents to decorate their rooms and to make their space an expression of themselves. And we do our part to make everyone’s life as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Both short and long-term residents enjoy all of this, and more:

  • Therapeutic recreation, which is both enjoyable and engaging. Developed in a collaboration of our therapy and recreation teams, it furthers physical and occupational therapy and makes it a fun part of daily life here.
  • A discrete security system that ensures that the building is safe from unauthorized entry. It also protects those residents who need careful monitoring from finding themselves in an unfamiliar area of the building, or off the grounds.
  • A full time activities staff. And we think they are one of the best. Not only are our residents busy with activities, hobbies and shows, but Schenectady Center is known to family members and community residents alike as a great place to attend special events.
  • Secured landscaped lawn for summer barbecues or just enjoying the fresh air.
  • And of course, we provide toiletries and bath amenities, the services of a beautician and barber, complimentary laundry service, wi-fi, and individual cable television for each resident.
