We suggest you use the above list as a strong starting point for your search. Keep in mind that a high ranking does not necessarily mean that your loved one will receive good care and a poor evaluation does not necessarily mean that your loved one is destined to be abused or neglected if placed there. Make sure you do your own due diligence before choosing where to place your loved one.

The following may also be beneficial in determining the right Decatur area nursing home for you or your loved one:

  • Tour the facility checking for cleanliness and staffing levels;
