• Women make 90 percent of health care decisions for themselves and their elderly parents, according to a study published by the American Academy of Family Physician.

Nursing homes qualify for this highly selective annual list based on an objective proprietary scoring process. The selection process begins with the 5 star rating system from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services rating three major elements: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care. Weighting was then applied that reflect women’s preferences and priorities. In addition, any facility with serious deficiency reports is eliminated from consideration.
