FAIRFIELD – The Jewish Home of Fairfield County has received a five-star rating in the most recent report of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Only a small percentage of the 16,000 nursing homes across the country have received this top rating.
“We are incredibly proud of this accomplishment,” said Marge Nicolia, vice president of the Home’s Nursing Services. “Our extremely dedicated staff consistently works together as a team to achieve exceptional quality care for our residents.”
The Medicare report evaluates all nursing homes that participate in the Medicare system. Each facility is rated on a scale of one to five based on 17 measures that take into account recent health inspections, staffing, and quality measures for both long-term and short-term residents.
According to the Home’s president and CEO Andrew H. Banoff, “the five-star rating is a testament to our excellent staffing ratios and our caregivers who work hard 24/7, 365 days a year to provide the best possible care and activities for each and every one of our residents.”
The Jewish Home of Fairfield County is a nursing and short-term rehabilitation facility that has been serving the community for 39 years. Staff provide specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care, outpatient rehab, as well as a full range of home care and companion services in client’s homes throughout Southwestern Connecticut.
