History, Mission & Values
Caring for the elderly for generations.
The Daughters of Sarah Jewish Home for Aged was founded in 1942 with only 18 beds in a refurbished private home on Western Avenue in Albany. Seven years later, Joseph Goodman spearheaded the successful effort to build a dedicated Nursing Center on land in Troy, donated by his family.
With the legacy of Mr. Goodman’s generosity, combined with the foresight of the regional Jewish community, Daughters of Sarah became the organization that served the health and social needs of women and men throughout northeastern New York State and western New England. By the late 1960s, there was a long list of individuals waiting for admission to the Nursing Center, and plans were pursued to meet the escalating number of needs of the aging within the community.
The determination of the Jewish community to create an expanded facility was realized in 1973 by the opening of Daughters of Sarah Nursing & Rehabilitation Center on more than 40 wooded acres skirting the City of Albany. Daughters of Sarah is the only kosher residence in a 130-mile radius designed to serve the Jewish community.
Today, still growing to meet the continuum needs of the region’s seniors and their families, The Massry Residence at Daughters of Sarah Daughters offers 56 gracious assisted living and enhanced assisted living apartments for seniors who need a little help with their activities of daily living. The Daughters of Sarah Nursing & Rehabilitation Center provides 210 private rooms with private bathrooms, and offers short-term rehabilitation services, the Golub Family Memory Enhancement Center for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, long-term skilled nursing care, and palliative care. Our Community for Seniors provides expanded opportunities for socialization, dignity and an active lifestyle, with an efficient delivery of services.
It is our mission to enhance the quality of life, assure the safety and dignity, and foster the independence of those we serve through residential, personal care, health, and other services consistent with Jewish values and traditions.
Daughters of Sarah Community for Seniors provides a welcoming environment, carefully designed to facilitate, maximize, and enrich the quality of life for all our residents and their families. We respect each individual’s philosophy of life, death, culture and religion. We are committed to conducting ourselves with high moral standard and integrity, and have the responsibility to act in our residents’ best interests so they are protected, well cared for, and can live meaningful lives.
We see people thrive every day through respect, compassion and acts of loving kindness. At Daughters of Sarah, our atmosphere of warmth, dignity and respect helps foster an environment to live life to its fullest.
Among the highest of honors is the opportunity to care for those who once cared for us.
