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 a 234 bed skilled nursing care center located in the Mark Twain neighborhood of 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. It is through this approach that has allowed us to be so successful with our clinical operations and resident outcomes. 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.

Three veterans who are current residents at Silver Springs Care Center in Meriden took part in an equine therapy program through Manes and Motions, a Therapeutic Riding Center operated by Hospital for Special Care in New Britain. According to the Manes website, “riding a horse gives you freedom and empowerment through movement. A horse can be a powerful motivator in reviewing or reinforcing many behavioral, physical, mental, social and emotional goals.”
