With a population of 31,651 people, Freeport, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are only 4 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many options to choose from. Unfortunately, we gave the nursing homes in this city city grade of D, which is a very weak grade at the city level. For comparison's sake, we assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Beloit, which also received a below average city grade of D. Both places received forgettable reports from us. We really don't have too many positive things to say about this city's nursing homes, but their best category was nursing grades.

While its overall grade was abysmal, we awarded the facilities in Freeport a respectable grade of B- in our nursing category. Our nursing rating assesses a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. Surprisingly, this city also performed decently in our inspections category, where it earned a respectable inspection report this year. It earned a grade of C in that category. In the last two categories, the city were awarded a C for its short-term care rating and a grade of D in the area of long-term care. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a long-term care score in this range may be an issue for some prospective residents.
