Dear Veteran and Family Members,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the General Court and myself, it is my sincere pleasure to provide you with an overview of the Soldiers' Home in Chelsea.

The Soldier' Home is a state-funded, fully accredited health care complex that offers veterans:

  • long term care
  • skilled nursing
  • full-time residential accommodations, and
  • a multi-service outpatient department

The Soldiers' Home in Chelsea opened in 1882 to care for Civil War participants and has been serving America's veterans continuously since then. Our mission is to provide the highest level of comprehensive care, while respecting the psycho-social, spiritual, and cultural needs of our veterans and their families. We are always striving to extend comfort, dignity and responsive care to all of our patients.

We take pride in the facilities that are available to the veterans of Massachusetts. Our dedicated staff of doctors, nurses and administrative support personnel have one goal: to provide the best "Care With Honor and Dignity" to Massachusetts veterans.

We are, as always, at your service. Our motto is, "Veterans First!"
