Reviews of Glendale Home Schdy Cnty Dept

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother is in Schenectady County Glendale Home. I think it is a safe and good place. However, there is not enough staffing to give each client the personal care that they need. Right now, they are taking care of their meds administering and bathe them every day or twice a week. They need more staff to help for feeding and to give more personal care. However, other than that, it is fine. The rooms are updated, very new, and very nice. The staff in the kitchen is very nice, and I think the food is fine. I think they can improve on their activities. They have bingo, masses, and visiting entertainers, but I think they need more activities.

I visited this facility
I am a relative of a former resident, which is why I selected the experience as a visitor. Overall, I'd say this is an avergae facility. Considering that this is a county funded home, I am not suprised to have found the overall experience average. I believe the one thing I noticed the most is that there does not seem to be a ton of staff on at any given shift to attend to the residents. In many cases, they are either wheeled out to a hallway or a community room and left to their own accord. Not having much previous experience with any sort of facility like this before, perhaps I had unrealistically high expectations. I personally found that the adminisrators we met with regarding some issues with the relative's care were largely unhelpful. The food that I sampled was adequate but by no means exciting. Activites were planned daily and it was up to the interest of the individual patient if he or shw wished to participate in them. They didn't seem to always be timely on the medication schedule either. Again, you get what you pay for. If this was a private home I would have expected and should have received better overall care. But for some who do not have the resources at their disposal for private care, this is an adequate facility if you have few other options. I would not make this a first choice if you have the means to make use of a private facility.

I visited this facility
The facility was dirty, smelled bad. People in their rooms yelling for nurses, or just anyone to come in their room. The staff seemed unsure of how to care for some of these people. I was an EMT going to the nursing home and was astounded at how easy the fix was for the person who we came for.
