Serving older adults since 1852

Throughout its long and rich history, which began in 1852, Albany Guardian Society has always endeavored to improve the quality of life for older adults. That core belief that older adults deserve support and assistance has not changed and it remains embedded in the Mission Statement of Albany Guardian Society. These abiding beliefs and stated goals recall the vision of the founders and also provide the foundation for the next century of operation as a resource in the field of aging services.

Albany Guardian Society’s mission is to improve the lives of seniors in the Capital Region, their families and their caregivers, through information, education, research, and collaboration.
