With a population of 20,094 , Homewood, Illinois is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't provide you with too many options to choose from. Unfortunately, we awarded the nursing homes in this city city grade of D, which is a terrible score at the city level. Surprisingly, this city's city grade narrowly surpassed the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Cicero, which received a terrible city grade. We would advise you to be very selective in either city. We really don't have many positive things to say about this city's facilities, but their best category was short-term care ratings. You can continue reading to learn more about short-term care and other category grades.
While its overall score was awful, we gave the nursing homes in Homewood a decent grade of B- in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We also wanted to point out that we gave Homewood a grade of C in our nursing category. Lastly, the city received abysmal grades for our inspections and long-term care categories respectively. Clearly, this city's long-term care grade really dragged down its overall grade.
