Choosing the perfect Texas nursing home for your loved one can be very stressful, but there are resources that can help you find a place that fits your loved one’s needs. U.S. News has recently compiled ratings and useful data about almost every nursing facility in the United States.
They created a searchable database called Nursing Home Compare, which is specifically designed to highlight the highest-rated homes in any given area. It is a reputable tool that is run by the Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
On Nursing Home Compare, facilities are given a rating of one to five stars based on how they do in state-conducted health inspections, their nursing and physical therapy staffing and the quality of medical care they provide.
There are many facilities in Texas that have earned an overall five star rating. A random sample of some of the highest rated nursing homes in Dallas, TX include:
- CC Young Memorial Home: This facility received a much above average rating for its health inspection and had a high quality rating.
- Walnut Place: This nursing home has a five star rating for its quality score and four stars for health inspections and staffing.
- The Plaza at Edgemere Health Care: This facility had five stars for health inspections and staffing and three stars for its quality score.
