Nursing Home List

General Information


What is a Nursing Home?


A nursing home provides skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services to people with illnesses, injuries or functional disabilities. Nursing homes today serve the elderly as well as younger individuals with various needs. Nursing homes are generally standalone facilities, but some are linked to a hospital, assisted living or retirement community.

Services Provided in a Nursing Home


The level of care provided by nursing homes has increased significantly over the past decade. Many homes now provide much of the nursing care that was previously provided in a hospital setting. As a result, most nursing homes now focus their attention on rehabilitation, so that their clients can return to their own homes as soon as possible.

Therapies Provided in a Nursing Home


  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Respiratory therapy
