Why We Exist

Chapin Home for the Aging’s mission has remained steadfast since Mrs. Hannah Chapin opened our doors for the first time in 1869. Throughout history and to this day, Chapin Home has strived to provide residents with a true home, constantly adapting and evolving to suit the ever-changing healthcare needs of aging seniors.

About Chapin Home

Offering the highly personalized, skilled care needed to encourage optimal health and wellbeing, we go lightyears above and beyond basic senior nursing and rehabilitation care. With decades of experience, we know that excellent care requires so much more; a comfortable living space you can truly call home, a rich social life, physical activity, and cognitive support are all integral for holistic health and wellness.

At Chapin Home, we believe seniors deserve to enjoy their retirement in an environment that grants them the serenity and security they always dreamed of. Our teams of skilled nurses and rehabilitation experts are driven by one common goal – empowering our residents to live a life filled with happiness and opportunity, underpinned by seamlessly integrated care. Combining expert nursing and rehabilitation care in a comfortable living environment, we aim to promote optimal physical and mental wellbeing for each of our valued residents.

CMS Rating

The CMS’ Five-Star Quality Rating System aims to help families more easily identify excellent skilled nursing facilities. Establishments are rated based on a range of core factors including staffing, physical and clinical measures of wellbeing and health and safety inspections. Chapin Home is proud to have been awarded a five-star rating by the CMS for our outstanding quality of care.


We believe that senior care is stronger in numbers. In our mission to deliver the best quality of care for our residents, we maintain close professional affiliations with several leading medical centers, area hospitals and home health agencies. Hospice services are offered jointly with the Hospice Care Network and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York. At Chapin Home, we work collaboratively with our network of medical providers to ensure our residents consistently receive the cutting-edge, specialist care they deserve.

Our Values

  • Provide a ‘True Home’. We believe in going above and beyond for our residents, because no care plan can be deemed a success until a patient or resident is happy in their environment. We understand that moving into residential care for the first time can be daunting. At Chapin, we strive to ensure our seniors feel at home as quickly as possible. By providing attentive, individualized care, excellent on-site facilities and a calendar of recreational and social activities, we’re dedicated to cultivating that ‘true home’ feeling from the outset.
  • No Cookie Cutter Approaches. At Chapin Home for the Aging, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and commitment to delivering highly personalized care plans. Whether a senior is with us for short-term rehabilitation following an injury or illness or for long-term residential nursing, we stop at nothing to provide the targeted, detailed and all-encompassing care our residents deserve.
  • Quality Care for all. Chapin Home was founded on the strong philosophy of Dr. Edwin Chapin – “what is your need, not your creed.” This sentiment still sits at the forefront of our beliefs, driving everything we do. As a not-for-profit organization, we believe that all seniors deserve an enjoyable retirement and access to the absolute best in nursing and rehabilitation care.
  • Holistic Care Delivered by Experts. Inspired by our mission to provide a true home for our residents, we believe that quality care goes beyond the surface level. At Chapin Home, we’re committed to meeting our residents’ every need. We’re proud to offer not only the absolute best in nursing and rehabilitation, but exemplary nutritional, cognitive, social and emotional support, too.
  • A Family Focused Approach. Family caregivers are important to us. After all, you know your loved one better than anyone. We strive to keep families as involved in the care of their loved one as possible, and will always encourage you to take an active role in the development of their personalized care plan. With more than 150 years of serving seniors, we understand that moving a parent or loved one to a nursing facility can be difficult. At Chapin Home, we’re here for the whole family. Whether you need help and advice or a simple chat, we’ll be there to offer all the support and encouragement you need.
