As Seen In:

This small city (population: 66,135) has a lot to offer seniors from its own deep historical roots to its close proximity to Albany (15 miles south). And with plenty of choices, a Schenectady assisted living facility (ALF) won’t be hard to find. But first, let’s take a little tour.

Sitting along the Mohawk River in the heart of what was once Mohawk Indian country, Schenectady translates from Mohawk as “over the pine plains.” First settled by the Dutch in 1661, Schenectady is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. The Erie Canal ran through the heart of the city in the 1800s making it an important cog in the industrial revolution machine. In 1886, Thomas Edison established the Edison Machine Works here later becoming the General Electric Company and the giant corporation’s home until 1974.

To learn about Schenectady’s history, visit the Schenectady County Historical Society, a history museum and research library. To experience its history, stroll the Stockade Historic District with its 17th century Dutch and English houses.

For a more modern pursuit, try the Schenectady Museum & Suits-Bueche Planetarium with its GOTO Chronos Star Machine, a projector that displays 8,500 stars and 24 constellation outlines. And the Empire State Aerosciences Museum offers visitors hands-on exhibits, restored aircraft, and a massive research library.

Schenectady’s cost of living is 3% lower than the national average. According to a Genworth Financial survey, a one-bedroom in a Schenectady assisted living facility averages $4,227 a month. A private room in a nursing home averages $322 a day, while a semi-private averages $311 a day. The daily services of a home health aide average $50,336 a year based on a 44-hour workweek.
