Community to now be called "Masonicare at Chester Village"
Wallingford, CT, December 21, 2017 . . . Masonicare, the state's largest not-for-profit provider of senior healthcare and retirement living, has acquired Chester Village West from Iowa-based Life Care Services (LCS), an acquisition which fits seamlessly into Masonicare's plan for sustained, smart growth and future success in Connecticut.
A Life Plan/Continuing Care Retirement Community set on 55 acres in the Connecticut River town of Chester, the community consists of 105 cottages and apartments. "The addition of Chester Village to our organization is a win-win for all," said Jon-Paul Venoit, President/CEO of Masonicare. "We have extensive experience in the retirement living arena and our cultures are very similar. We are retaining nearly all of their employees, and we expect to invest in some capital improvements on the campus as well."
Hilde Sager, Vice President for Residential Services at Masonicare, added, "We're delighted to welcome Chester Village West residents and staff into our Masonicare family. We love the Chester area and look forward to Masonicare at Chester Village now being an integral part of the full continuum of senior care we are able to offer statewide."
Mr. Venoit noted that through its extensive continuum of care, Masonicare will be able to bring Assisted Living services to Chester Village residents as well as offer in-home care through its home care agencies.
Masonicare's continuum includes the 360-unit Ashlar Village in Wallingford, which is also a Life Plan/Continuing Care Retirement Community. In April, Masonicare celebrated the grand opening of Masonicare at Mystic, a rental model with 179 Independent and Assisted Living apartments.
Masonicare affiliates include Masonicare Home Health & Hospice, Masonicare at Ashlar Village, Masonicare at Home, Masonicare at Mystic, Masonicare at Newtown, Masonicare Health Center and The Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut.
