With three nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options to choose from in Alton, Illinois. Unfortunately, these nursing homes didn't excel from a quality standpoint.

We would advise you to tread carefully in either city. We don't have too many positive things to say about this place's facilities, but their best category was inspection reports.

While its overall score was abysmal, we awarded the nursing homes in Alton a respectable grade of B- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Surprisingly, we also gave Alton a grade of C for our short-term care rating. Finally, Alton were awarded a grade of C in our nursing category and a grade of D in long-term care. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor long-term care rating could be concerning for many people.
