There are three 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 considerably better than the city grade of B- received by the nearby city of Fall River. Both cities have some quality nursing homes, but Fairhaven appears to be a far better option. 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 short-term care. Short-term care scores of this caliber are a favorable sign for the physical and occupational therapy staffing levels at the facilities in the city. The city also performed remarkably well in the area of inspections, with an A- for that category. Rounding out its straight A report card, this place received top notch grades for our long-term care and nursing areas as well.
