Daily Gazette: Eddy SeniorCare Looks to Expand in Rotterdam

Eddy SeniorCare will expand its Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) and relocate from downtown Schenectady to a larger location in Rotterdam. The move will enable Eddy SeniorCare PACE to serve an additional 55 seniors in Schenectady County, an increase of 26 percent.

The Daily Gazette published an article on Eddy SeniorCare’s plans to move its Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) from downtown Schenectady to Rotterdam.

The move would allow the day program to serve an additional 55 senior citizens. The program would be located in what is now Mallozzi’s banquet hall on Curry Road.

From the article:

“Moving to this larger location will enable us to increase the number of seniors we serve every day, expand and improve the care we provide, and make it easier for family members to visit their loved ones,” said Kim Baker, president of continuing care at St. Peter’s Health Partners, parent company of Eddy SeniorCare.

The PACE program is designed for the frail elderly living independently, but needing assistance during the day. The program provides meals, activities, transportation to medical appointments and other needs, but allows the seniors to avoid a more-costly nursing home placement. “It’s really one-stop shopping,” said Ben Baskin, Seniorcare’s director of intake and marketing.
