Personal Attention, Professional Staff

We are known for our outstanding staff-to-patient ratio, which results in personal attention for our patients, often exceeding the prescribed care and therapies dictated by benefits or other factors. Our staff and patients develop a strong bond that creates a true family environment and, ultimately, successful healthcare outcomes. Many  residents return to us following additional surgeries or when they need care. They recommend us to their family, neighbors and friends. Our continuity of care — often with the same professional caregivers — provides peace-of-mind for all.

Career Opportunities

Hattie Ide Chaffee Home has enjoyed a long history of well-trained and compassionate staff members who are the heart and sole of our facility. We are proud to maintain competitive wages and benefits to those who provide care to our residents.
