There are two facilities in Biddeford, Maine, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The nursing homes in this city received an excellent city grade of A. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Lewiston, which received a city grade of A-. As impressed as we were with the nursing homes in Lewiston, we found Biddeford to be rated even higher. Topping off a great profile, this city has the distinction of being one of the three highest rated cities in all of Maine.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Biddeford an elite grade of A+ in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Biddeford performed spectacularly well in terms of its nursing grade as well. As a result, we awarded Biddeford an A in this area. Wrapping up its straight A profile, we awarded the city an A for its short-term care rating and an A- for long-term care.
