Day care center under construction at Shaker Place in Albany

Albany County’s Shaker Place & Rehab Center will soon be expanding to include a day care center.
County Executive Dan McCoy led media through a walk-through of the facility on Tuesday morning.

The county started working on the project at the end of January.

The center will provide an added incentive to help attract and retain skilled nursing staff, said McCoy. He also said this project will help create a solution for problems we saw when COVID hit, and a lot of people had to leave the workforce.

Work begins on a playground later this month. The day care center is expected to be open later this summer.
