About Senior Care from Visiting Angels of Albany, NY

Since 1998, Visiting Angels has grown to be one of the nation’s leading senior care agencies. Families from Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Rensselaer, Columbia, and Greene County look to us to help their seniors maintain their independence and dignity through our care. Owners Robert Coan R.N. and Rob Bertram R.N. believed that the senior population was underrepresented and underserved. They constantly saw seniors in nursing homes all alone and were looking to break that cycle. With their knowledge of the healthcare field along with their military experience, they could make a positive impact on the community and help local seniors live fulfilling and happy lives.

For seniors, the opportunity to live at home is incredibly important. Through our home care services, we want to provide that opportunity. We’ve curated a strong and professional staff that understands the importance of open communication. No matter what questions you may have, we can help you find an answer.
