There are two nursing homes in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, so at least you have a few options. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a superb city grade of A-. Even with only a few facilities, this is still a great achievement. We found this city grade is even better than the city grade of B received by the nearby city of New Bedford. Both cities have some quality nursing homes, but Fairhaven appears to be an even better place to find a nursing home. We were so impressed with Fairhaven that we rated it as one of the top 250 cities in the country.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that we awarded Fairhaven an impressive grade of A in the category of long-term care. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. The city also performed remarkably well in the area of inspections, with an A- for that category. Rounding out its quality report card, Fairhaven earned favorable grades in our nursing and short-term care areas as well.
