I was lucky enough, with the help of that site, to find one that was within 10 miles of home, ranked high in quality, had a higher ratio of help to patients and offered twice as much rehab time and the best part was, at the time, our insurance covered everything...

If you're considering a nursing home, rehab center or assisted living I urge you to check it out...

P. S. Ratings change so don't go by the ratings today and expect them to be the same 3 years from now.
