Our History

Jerome Home is the legacy of benefactor Augustus Smith Jerome, a businessman whose will included a request that a home be established for the care of the elderly in greater New Britain. Upon Jerome’s passing in 1905, planning for the home began, and a 5 ½-acre lot in New Britain was purchased in 1926. Jerome Home was established in 1932, with 24 residents housed in the newly-constructed building, known as the Attwood Residence.

Since our founding, Jerome Home has continued to grow in both size and scope. Expansions were thoughtfully planned and built in 1974 and 1990, allowing us to accomodate more residents and expand our spectrum of services. With the opening of a memory care community and independent living apartments at Arbor Rose on the same campus in 2008, Jerome Home now offers many levels of care and services to seniors on one site.
