LTC in Nursing Homes
When a nursing home is the best option, it is important that you visit facilities you are interested in, take a tour, and meet the staff. You can visit state and federal website to help you find nursing homes in your area. It is important to remember that you must have the highest level of need to qualify for Medicaid LTSS coverage in a nursing home.
See "Choosing a Nursing Home" on the RI Department of Health website.
Go to www.medicare.gov and select "Find nursing homes". This will take you to the Nursing Home Compare page so you can search by area. Data gathered by RI state inspectors is fed into this national system.
