  • Nursing Home Rating System

    Options for available nursing and rehabilitation care can be overwhelming. To aid families struggling with such a decision, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily.

    While Kindred recognizes the value of a nationwide rating system for nursing homes, it's important to understand that the system is not perfect.

    The CMS system is designed to assess the "traditional" nursing home, one typified by an elderly population and extended stays. Kindred facilities, however, also provide specialized care for patients with transitional needs - such as physical rehabilitation following surgery or stroke - or dementia, common in the growing elderly population.

    In choosing a long-term care solution, Kindred Healthcare and CMS agree that the five-star system is just one of many tools available for gathering critical information. Nothing, however, can replace a visit to a nursing and rehabilitation center to assess the environment, culture and available services.

    We invite you to visit us to have a look around, talk to our staff and residents, and see for yourself how Kindred Healthcare is changing attitudes about nursing home care.
