America's Best Nursing Homes

The February edition of US News has a section titled, "America's Best Nursing Homes" and it lists some of the top nursing homes in various states. If you're thinking about long-term care for yourself or for a loved one, then you may want to look at this list.

In my region, some of the top nursing homes (according to US News) include:
  • Crosslands in Kennett Square, PA
  • Calvary Fellowship Homes in Lancaster, PA
  • Holy Name Friary in Ringwood, NJ
  • Cokesbury Village in Hockessin, DE
  • Our Lady of Hope Residence in Latham, NY
There are 173 nursing homes listed and some scored a total of 15 stars while others scored a total of 14 stars in 3 different categories. All the homes listed scored 5 stars overall, the highest rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

You can also view the Medicare.gov - Nursing Home Compare website to do some research about different nursing homes in your area (www.medicare.gov/nhcompare).
