Presbyterian Homes & Services is a member of Community Wellness Partners – a faith-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit affiliation of LutheranCare® and Presbyterian Homes & Services – offering the most complete continuity of health and wellness services for older adults in Oneida County. Presbyterian Homes & Services’ 62-acre campus offers a full range of health care services for older adults, including home care and adult day programs, short-term and outpatient rehabilitation, assisted living and skilled nursing. Our secure campus provides the tranquility of nature with its colorful flower gardens and plentiful wildlife, and is close to shopping, restaurants, churches, banks and medical offices.
In the beginning, the Utica Presbytery wanted to build a residence for senior Presbyterians in need of nursing care. In 1967, Presbyterian Home for Central New York welcomed its first resident. By the fall of that same year, it was full.
Plans for a special needs residence to serve those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias were realized in 1986. Soon after, an adult day health care program opened in 1988.
In 2001, our Parkinson’s Residence opened – one of the first in the nation located in a skilled nursing residence – and serves as a model for other facilities across the nation.
In 2006, we welcomed the first resident to the telemedicine program. This program is offered for people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders who could benefit from consulting with a specialist via a telecommunications system within the facility. This program serves individuals in six surrounding counties.
In 2010, plans were approved to convert 18 Adult Home accommodations to 18 Assisted Living accommodations to provide services to residents that are medically eligible for placement in a nursing home, but due to a stable medical condition, can be cared for in an environment that fosters greater independence.
After being awarded a grant in 2011, the Parkinson’s Residence was renovated and expanded to accommodate the needs of additional Parkinson’s residents.
Preswick Glen celebrated its 5th Anniversary in 2012 and underwent many upgrades over the next 5 years, including:
- Addition of the formal dining room
- Campus walkway
- 2 apartment models and one cottage model
- Cosmetic enhancements throughout the community
In 2016, Presbyterian Homes & Services and LutheranCare® formed an affiliation, Community Wellness Partners, offering the most complete continuity of health and wellness services for older adults in Oneida County.
