Masonicare – Why Work For Us?

undefinedMasonicare 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:

  • Skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities – Masonicare Health Center in Wallingford andMasonicare at Newtown.
  • Independent living options – A continuing care retirement community, Masonicare at Ashlar Village, and the A. Norman Johnson Apartments, Kenneth B. Hawkins Apartments and Wells Apartments for individuals 55 and over, all located in Wallingford
  • Assisted living communities – Pond Ridge in Wallingford and Lockwood Lodge in Newtown
  • A residential care home – the Leslie G. Wright Residence in Wallingford
  • Masonicare Home Health & Hospice, a statewide home healthcare and hospice provider that touches 3,000 patients each month through its 11 offices.

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.

    I have been working at Masonicare part-time (More than 3 years)


    Great company to work for! Masonicare treats their employees equally and with respect. Great teamwork and flexibility. Would definitely recommend the facility to others.


    As any company, there could be improvement to benefit the company. This includes solving simple mistakes that have happened in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing does a good job with coverage; however, sometimes floating to different floors is needed when staff is down. Therefore, work can become complicated when the staff is unfamiliar with the patients and residents. Teamwork comes handy during times like these.
