Even though nursing homes are regulated by the government, they vary considerably in quality, character and cost. So it helps to get as much information as possible before making a decision about which nursing home (sometimes called a skilled nursing facility) is right for you.

If you or someone you love has suffered a fall and needs rehab after a hospital stay, you may not have much time to decide. On the other hand, your loved one may be living on their own and really needs the support of a nursing home for their own safety, health and social engagement. In either case, it helps to have a way to compare your options.
