Celebrating longevity is nothing new for Chapin Home for the Aging, which has been serving the community with care and compassion for three centuries.
Founded in 1869, shortly after the Civil War, by Edwin Chapin’s wife, Chapin Home’s original location was in Manhattan and had two locations in Queens. It moved to Jamaica in 1912 and is still serving the New York City and Long Island communities.
Chapin Home’s philosophy, throughout its history, has been to provide the aging men and women who have come to live here a true home where they may find the serenity and security that have always been envisioned as essential and appropriate to the latter part of life. Chapin’s staff of dedicated professionals is committed to providing the highest level of quality care and nurturing environment for both residents and families.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) developed a star-rating system to provide consumers with an easy way to search for nursing homes that provide quality of care. Proudly, Chapin Home was just awarded the coveted five-star rating with an overall rating of “Much Above Average,” where five stars were given in overall quality, health inspection and quality measures in categories for data reported through Dec. 31.
