At the Promenade, we take the unique needs of our seniors into consideration— financial, medical, and otherwise. Our Medicaid-funded Assisted Living Program (ALP) ensures that our seniors receive the quality of care they deserve, regardless of their ability to pay. All of our residents can rest assured that they may qualify for the program, and need not look for other accommodations, should they someday lack the means to pay privately for their care.

The Promenade University Place is one of the few Assisted Living Residences in the Capital Region that is licensed by New York State to accept residents under the Medicaid funded Assisted Living Program. In order to qualify for an ALP, one must satisfy certain financial and medical criteria. The availability of ALP beds is limited; therefore it may not be available to all eligible individuals.

Call today to learn more about the process and eligibility to participate in our Assisted Living Program.

We want your loved one to remain in the place they call home, regardless of cost!


The Promenade is certified by the New York State Department of Health as an Enhanced Assisted Living Residence, which enables us to admit and retain residents who exceed the retention standards of a typical assisted living residence—particularly residents who have become physically frail.

To achieve this distinction, the Promenade has demonstrated to the Department of Health that it has appropriate levels of service capacity, staff, and training to provide an enhanced level of care.

This designation allows eligible Promenade residents to age in place, rather than be discharged to a higher level of care.



The signs of memory loss are devastating—and difficult to comprehend.  The Promenade at University Place’s memory care community can help. Our staff provides individualized care on a 24/7 basis in a serene and comforting environment.

Oftentimes, residents who believe they need memory care will join our community, only to later find they’re more comfortable in our supportive assisted living program, or vice versa.

We make it easy to switch between both environments so seniors can receive appropriate care—and continue to flourish.

Misplaced items. Social bewilderment.  Inability to recognize loved ones.

The Promenade at University Place is licensed, through the New York State Department of Health, to serve individuals with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.  Promenade has designed a secure unit for seniors requiring more specialized services, more intense supervision, and a safer, secured environment specifically designed to appropriately meet their evolving needs as their cognitive abilities decline.

The Promenade’s SNALR residents are provided with a safe, secure living environment where specialized programming, and services provide maximized freedom together with appropriate care for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and other cognitive disabilities.
