Named for Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, The Athenaeum of Skaneateles is an intimate senior living community offering assisted living and memory care for your loved one. Known affectionately in the community as the “big yellow building up the hill,” The Athenaeum was once a large mansion that has been converted into single rooms for senior living, giving our building a homey feel and comfortable atmosphere.
By embracing The Peregrine Way®, The Athenaeum at Skaneateles provides a supportive environment for seniors and their families. We specialize in assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, encouraging them to lead full lives by continuing to grow mentally, spiritually and socially.
Our assisted living services go beyond daily support with personal care. For us, assisted living is about providing your loved one with the opportunity for meaningful social connections, personal fulfillment and fostering intellectual, spiritual and emotional growth.Learn More >
At The Athenaeum, our goal is to stimulate and comfort your loved one in mind, body and spirit. Instead of focusing on basic needs like other memory care communities, we involve our residents in life-affirming activities to help preserve their stories and the essence that makes your loved one unique.Learn More >
