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 even 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 an even better place to find a nursing home. We were so impressed with Fairhaven that we rated it as one of the top 500 cities in the country.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Fairhaven an elite grade of A in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. The city also performed remarkably well in the area of short-term care, where it received an A- for this area. Rounding out its quality profile, the city received favorable grades for our long-term care and nursing categories as well.
