about our nursing home in danbury ct

Our History

Born to Lebanese immigrants in Maryland, Barbara Filosa followed her older sister’s footsteps into nursing and then turned her passion for geriatrics into a family business. Mrs. Filosa founded Filosa Convalescent Home (now Filosa for Nursing and Rehabilitation) in 1947, the sister facility to Hancock Hall.

The business had its beginnings in Danbury, where she’d moved with her ailing husband. Filosa found work at Danbury Hospital. However, she only stayed two years there, as she decided to stay home to raise her daughter and take in an elderly neighbor who needed care.

From that point on, Barbara Filosa opened her home to the elderly. She was happy to work from home, as it also allowed her to care for her daughter and husband, who was ill for 13 years before his death in 1961.

Her home quickly filled with the elderly in need of care; at one point — before her home had two expansions built on — she housed and cared for 14 patients.

Now Filosa’s small nursing home has turned into two facilities in Danbury — Filosa for Nursing and Rehabilitation and Hancock Hall started in 1983 by her daughter and son-in-law, Barbara and Frank Malone.

The family takes pride in continuing to provide the highest quality service and care to community members in need.

Long Term Care - Nursing Home

Hancock Hall is a premier senior living community in Danbury, CT. Our long term senior care services are all-encompassing. We develop personalized treatment plans for each one of our residents and offer peace of mind for their loved ones. At Hancock, our home-like living facilities are always kept in pristine condition and our skilled nursing staff attends to our residents 24 hours a day.

How Do We Differ From An Assisted Living Community

A couple of differences between an assisted living facility and a nursing home are the medical services provided, licensing of the staff, and the frequency a “patient” is attended to and cared for. 

In a skilled nursing facility or nursing home, a comprehensive and holistic treatment plan is put in place from day one. At Hancock Hall, our round the clock nursing staff provides care and supports your loved one with expertise and compassion. We want you to have the peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for just as well as you would.Read More »
