My grandmother was very particular when it came to what assisted living residence she stayed in. Wynwood of Albany was the eventual winner because of its well cared for grounds, amply stocked art room, and the quality of the food. She also got to decide if she wanted to go down to the dining room for dinner or stay in her room and she appreciated the choice.I found the facility clean and staffed by cheerful, knowledgeable people. The gift shop in particular was run far better than the other such stores in my grandmother's previous residences.My only complaints were the noise in the rec area (the televisions were often too loud and competing with each other) and the limited options when it came to off site entertainment. My grandmother had no real interest in joining in on these outings anyway, so it was of no consequence to her.Overall I would recommend Wynwood of Albany, particularly in the case of extremely limited mobility residents. Lots of good places to sit and chat.
This facility has an excellent care team, I have personally seen them in some very chaotic situations and they have pushed through these times in a professional, friendly, and calm manner. They work very, very well under pressure which is what you want to find in a senior care community staff. The staff and the residents get along really well together, it is easy to see that the residents feel confident and safe with relying on the staff and the staff act as if they have known the residents for years. They are so personable with each other. I have seen the staff celebrate with the residents during good times and support the residents during not so good times. They really do have a wonderful care team, and I would feel blessed having them care for my own loved ones.
The facility itself is pretty nice, some areas have a very institutional feel to it, but other sections of the facility are very cozy and designed very "home-like", the residents all seem to feel comfortable and I always see them scattered throughout the facility partaking in different activities.
I think the best thing about this facility is how well the residents are cared for and that easily trumps whether or not I like the design of the facility. After all, quality of care is really what it boils down to right?
So I would absolutely recommend Wynwood of Albany, which by the way is in a great Albany location, I grew up near there and it has always remained a very calm and quiet neighborhood. Take the time to visit this facility, I think you will be very happy with what you find there.

I would NEVER put a loved one in this facility. They not only give your loved one the wrong medicines, but they are very likely to never give them their prescription medicinejjs. Hope that they are not homebound, stuck in their apt, not able to go down for their meals. They are likely to never get their meals delivered to them, or given meals that they can't chew or digest. If they fall down, they usually won't be discovered for quite some time. The trash is piled up for days, rodent infestion is most likely to happen as they do not clean the apts, even tho you pay them for that service. I would never again put a loved one in that facility. They are being investigated even as I write. Stay away from this facility.
