Person-Centered First and Foremost
What sets our senior housing apart is our legacy of caring for people. It’s the great sense of pride in the work we do and the longevity of our team. Our highly experienced team is on-site around-the-clock. They love what they do and it shows. They get to know you and your family deep down to create a personalized experience that supports your specific needs, likes and desires.
We’re here to support our residents’ emotional well-being as well as the physical. That’s why we’re so big on the importance of social connectivity. We want and encourage all our residents to get out and participate, be with peers and neighbors, to do what they love, to still explore, enjoy nature and the Hartford County, CT, community and beyond.
Connect with the World Around You
Want to get out and do something fun and enriching? One of the many ways you can do this is through our unique relationship with the Cobb Montessori school we visit twice monthly. Our residents have forged a lovely partnership with young children ages 4 to 6 where they share in songs, read stories and do projects together. The children visit McLean a few times a year, too.
You can enjoy time with friends in our lively common spaces or in an exercise class. Attend a cultural event in Simsbury or a play in Hartford. Treat yourself to wonderful restaurants and explore the many inviting shops in the area. Engage with others at our numerous on-site educational and social programs and events. However you like to spend your time, you’ll have the right support that empowers you to get out and live the life you love.

Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, needs can be matched to the right level of assistance. When help with daily tasks is needed, such as taking medicines, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and/or housekeeping, or if safety is a concern, an assisted living residence can be the answer. Trained professionals provide this assistance while helping preserve an individual’s independence. If concerns are identified by a resident, loved one, friends, neighbors or team members, our interdisciplinary team will coordinate a meeting with the resident and family to explore options. We do this together.
This is the idea behind the continuum of care. In addition to Assisted Living, McLean offers memory care for those suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of age-related dementia. Then there is Skilled Nursing care. In addition to regular wellness evaluations, Skilled Nursing care at McLean offers licensed, comprehensive, round-the-clock care for those recovering from illness or injury or needing more long-term supervision and care.
