Welcome to Chelsea Place Care Center
Dear Resident and Family Members,
I would like to welcome you to Chelsea Place Care Center. Chelsea Place is located in the Mark Twain neighborhood within the historic West End of Hartford. At Chelsea we celebrate our diversity in our residents, families, neighborhood and our staff. It’s through this diversity that we are able to most effectively meet the healthcare challenges of our community.
Chelsea Place has a broad scope of services, but despite having such a broad base we strongly encourage all of our staff to get to know all of the residents, their interests, needs and personalities.

Our ability to retain knowledgeable and skilled professionals has contributed greatly towards our continuing improvement and success and has enabled Chelsea Place Care Center to partner with other leading healthcare organizations across the state.
