About Masonicare

Masonicare of Wallingford, Connecticut, is the state’s leading provider of healthcare and retirement living communities for seniors. We are not-for-profit and have more than 100 years of experience behind us. We’re recognized for the quality, compassionate care and steadfast support we provide to our residents and patients.

Our Roots

Masonicare’s roots date back to 1750, when Connecticut’s first Masonic Lodge was chartered. Nearly 150 years later, in 1889, Connecticut Masons began a charitable fund that became The Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut, and in 1895, dedicated an 88-acre homestead in Wallingford as The Masonic Home.

Now Open to All

At its inception, The Home’s mission was to care for the elderly and orphans with Masonic connections. During the ensuing years, Masonicare grew exponentially and greatly expanded its healthcare services and retirement living options. The organization, which is now open to all – not just Masons – employs more than 2,500 people throughout the state.

Today, Masonicare encompasses a broad range of healthcare and senior living options:

Accredited for Excellence

Masonicare’s affiliates are accredited and approved for excellence by their respective accrediting bodies, including the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC), as well as being Medicare certified and licensed by the State of Connecticut.

Accreditation assures a high standard of care and best practices for governance and financial management.

Clinical Affiliations

Masonicare is unique among many nursing homes in its use of fully employed doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants as in a traditional medical model that provides cohesive care across its continuum. An ideal learning destination for geriatrics, hospice and palliative care, Masonicare is proud to be officially affiliated with local universities such as Quinnipiac University Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine to provide medical students with educational opportunities in a real world setting.

Our “Ageless Commitment to Caring”

At Masonicare, we believe in caring for the whole person – mind, body and spirit. We’re dedicated to continuing the “ageless commitment to caring” that has been the cornerstone of our organization for more than 100 years.
