Consumer Reports - A Nursing Home Ratings Website

Consumer Reports has launched a new website called the Consumer Reports Nursing Home Quality Monitor which ranks nursing home facilities in each state.

This site included general advice on how to choose a nursing home that is a good fit for you or your loved one, and also has detailed information on which homes have been fined for violating state or federal regulations, and so forth.

Consumer Reports suggests that persons who are interested in learning more about area nursing homes contact their local Area Agency on Aging. In Ohio, call 1-866-243-5678 to find your local agency.
