Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological disease that affects more than 5.3 million Americans, robbing their memory, cognitive skills, mobility, personality and ability to communicate.
Since the 1980s, The Eddy has been committed to improving the quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. In 1997, The Eddy opened Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Center in Cohoes, a unique residential community specially designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other related memory loss.
In 2006, we expanded that commitment with the opening of Eddy Alzheimer’s Center at Eddy Hawthorne Ridge in East Greenbush. We are proud of our innovative memory care communities, each providing a warm, homelike environment where dignity and independence come first.
