Dear Residents and Family Members, 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to MissionCare at Holyoke.  Formerly known as Mount Saint Vincent Care Center and the successor to the Farren Care Center program, MissionCare at Holyoke has been part of the iCare Health Network since 2021 and is a specialized long term care center – the only one of its kind in Massachusetts.

                      We’re Hiring!              Click here for an application.                Click here for open positions.

MissionCare cares primarily for residents with a dual diagnoses of mental illness and a major medical condition as well as residents with other stigmatizing factors who may be difficult to place in a standard long term care setting or other site of care. Residents are referred to the center for long term care from all around the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and New England. MissionCare’s clinical and behavioral programming is tailored to individuals with these diagnoses and needs.     

It is an honor and a privilege to make our residents feel home and bring a person centered approach, coupled with strong community support to ensure they feel warmth and compassion. It is very rewarding and I am proud to be an administrator and care for our residents everyday with such a great team.

The MissionCare at Holyoke campus was designed to create a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere that contributes to each resident’s ability to enjoy his or her continuing life experience. Located atop the Ingleside section of Holyoke, overlooking the Connecticut River, every floor offers contemporary, comfortable resident rooms along with dining rooms, lounges and activity spaces. Residents also can enjoy the Center’s recreational areas and a large, secure outdoor space. A large community room, hair salon and cafeteria also are on site. Continue reading…

  • Beneath the banner of the brave and free, In shadows deep, where silent battles rage, There lies a soul who fought for you and me, Now trapped within a war’s unending cage.

“I would recommend this facility to family and friends. I have been having a wonderful time. The nurses to the CNAs work as a team and that's what matters.”
~ Resident DC (June 2023)
“I moved my mother here in December 2021 after a brief stay in the Boston area. I have been incredibly impressed from my first interactions with Nicole in Admissions (and throughout the admissions process) to my tour with Kyle where it was clear that there is a good, positive energy to this facility (staff was smiling and seemed happy to be there – a great feat, in my opinion, considering all that healthcare workers have been through in the past few years). I continue to be impressed by all of the receptionists, nurses, activity staff, social workers, business manager, etc. Everyone is so on the ball and willing to help…and quickly, when needed. I would highly recommend MissionCare to anyone looking for a safe, positive environment for their loved one.”
