The Jefferson House philosophy is to continue to meet the new needs of an expanding and changing population of elderly. It is our mission to provide and facilitate a continuum of high quality, individualized care primarily toward the maintenance and support of the aged.
Jefferson House was originally the Old People's Home, located on Jefferson Street in Hartford.  It offered the elderly an alternative to the County Poorhouse. Care was provided whether patients were active or sedentary, friend or stranger, with or without the ability to pay. (more)
