There are two facilities in Rockledge, Florida, which at least gives you a few options to choose from. These facilities earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a terrible grade, but it isn't as high of a score as we like to see either. This city looks to be a slightly better option than the local city of Sanford, which received a grade of D. Frankly, neither of these cities comes highly recommended. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' impressive long-term care scores, which you can find in the following section.
This city's best category grade was in our long-term care category. In this category, we gave the city a grade of B. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Rockledge also received an impressive nursing rating with a B in this area. In the other categories we looked at, the city were awarded a B- for its short-term care grade and a grade of D in inspections. Even with an otherwise strong profile, we find an inspections grade this low to be concerning.
