Hartford Senior Demographics

At one point in its history, Hartford was recognized as the wealthiest city in the United States. Much has changed since then and the city now ranks in the lowest three urban settings for family income and suffers from economic disparity compared to its suburbs. The city relies on the insurance industry to fuel its economy and is renowned as the Insurance Capital of the World due to the number of insurers that have based their companies within Hartford’s limits.

Its population of almost 125,000 makes Hartford the fourth largest city in Connecticut and seniors represent almost 9% of its total. With many more residents preparing to enter retirement, this segment of the population is due to grow in a very short span. Older residents who are looking for ways to remain active and independent can participate in classes, events and other social programs offered at the New Hartford Senior Center. Programs include fitness classes, Scrabble, Bingo, card games, Pilates and more.

Hartford Nursing Homes

There are many nursing homes serving the area and it is impossible for our Hartford nursing injury lawyers to cover them all. For this reason, we’ve focused on the worst rated facilities using information obtained through the Medicare nursing home compare tool found by visiting the Medicare website at https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare. For more in depth information or to compare facilities which have not been listed, we suggest that you use the tool yourself so that you can make more educated decisions regarding your loved ones’ care.

Ellis Manor
210 George Street
Hartford, CT 06114
(860) 296-9166
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating
Primary concerns: The only area of evaluation receiving a failing grade was this center’s health inspection record. Its infractions were so severe; however, that the facility’s overall grade was downgraded to only two stars.

Riverside Health & Rehabilitation
645 Main Street
East Hartford, CT 06108
(860) 289-2791
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating
Primary concerns: As is common at many for profit owned facilities, this center is understaffed and doesn’t invest enough resources into vetting and training its staff members. Rather than make the investment in qualified employees, these facilities will lay workers off to reduce overhead in a show that proves profits are more important than the health of patients.

Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: The Apple Rehab nursing chain is a screaming example of why there needs to be more regulation and oversight impacting the for profit nursing industry. This chain has numerous facilities appearing on this list and others in the region due to its systemic neglect of patient rights and needs. Understaffing, poor quality control measures and a deplorable health inspection record have relegated this center’s rating to a mere star.

New Britain, CT 06051
(860) 225-8608
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating
Primary concerns: A quality measures score of only one star stands out amid numerous other deficiencies, which include understaffing and a highly questionable health inspection history. This is another facility that has placed profits before patients, so the best way to motivate change is to trust a different center with your loved one’s wellbeing.

Apple Rehab Farmington Valley
269 Farmington Avenue
Plainville, CT 06062
(860) 747-1637
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating
Primary concerns: As mentioned previously, the Apple Rehab nursing chain has earned a very negative treatment due to systemic neglect and the prioritization of profit above safety. This is reflected here with a health inspection score of only one star. Patients here live under very concerning living conditions and are more likely to develop infections, be exposed to disease and live in an unclean environment.

1253 Hartford Turnpike
Rockville, CT 06066
(860) 875-0771
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 star out of 5

2 star rating
Primary concerns: A two star staff quality score exposes rampant understaffing, and this could correlate with the center’s numerous black marks on its health inspection record.

Apple Rehab Middletown600 Highland Avenue
Middletown, CT 06457
(860) 347-3315
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating
Primary concerns: This is one of the better rated Apple Rehab facilities on our list. Its staff and quality measures scores are both above average, yet the facility has been cited for numerous health and safety violations. It is clear that Apple Rehab simply doesn’t believe in investing in what most people would consider to be reasonable protocols to ensure that patients are kept safe and healthy.

Apple Rehab Avon
220 Scoville Road
Avon, CT 06001
(860) 673-3265
Ownership— For profit corporation
Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating
Primary concerns: Poor health and safety measures are once again the most serious offense for an Apple Rehab facility. This center’s quality measures score also suggests room for improvement in how patients’ needs are evaluated and addressed.

Unfortunately, due to the high number of nursing facilities in the area, our Hartford nursing injury lawyers could not cover every single facility that has a history of providing subpar care. We chose to focus on the worst of the worst, but urge you to use the Medicare nursing home compare tool when researching any potential home for those you hold dear.

Nursing abuse is becoming increasingly common in the United States and the rise in occurrences seems to coincide with the introduction of many for profit companies into the market over the last fifteen to twenty years just as Congress has made strong pushes over the same time frame to reduce the amount of federal funding afforded to nursing care programs.
