My life at Glen Eddy has been marked by new friendships and an easy-living style. The community is welcoming and vibrant. There are fun social events, interesting activities and volunteer opportunities. At the same time, there is quiet as desired in your fully equipped, modern apartment. Really, it is the best of all worlds: companionship yet privacy, plus a beautifully maintained and secure property without the maintenance hassles of a private home.
My husband and I moved to the Glen Eddy from a large home in Niskayuna. Although we were ready to downsize, we were concerned that it would be hard to adjust to apartment living. We feared feeling cooped in. But we were wrong. Our Glen Eddy apartment has enough private space and the common areas on the property provide lovely gathering spots for planned or impromptu social interactions.
When my husband died, the support and compassion I received during his illness and after his death from the staff and residents is something I will never forget. The experience reinforced to me that the Glen Eddy is a supportive community where residents care about each other in a respective manner.
Thank you Glen Eddy – it’s great to call you “Home”!

When we stepped across our new doorstep eight years ago, we were moving in among many strangers. In a short time, these strangers became very supportive friends.
We love it here. There is great food, no maintenance worries, snowplowing and lawn mowing are done for you … did we mention the food?
We like to walk on the campus and because of its park-like setting, it is also a great area to see the many varieties of birds and furry little animals.
We led a quiet life in our previous home. Since we have been here, it has been a very busy life. There are many chances to keep active from going on trips to attending educational presentations to dabbling in anything from art to cutting edge technology.

I have to laugh whenever someone asks how we like living at Glen Eddy. My husband immediately says enthusiastically, “I feel I’ve died and gone to heaven! No snow to shovel, no grass to cut, and a work order gets a house problem solved!”
I agree, but am also pleased how quickly the residents — all strangers before we moved in — have become family. That is a very comforting source of support as we grow older.
