Cape Cod Nursing Homes

Nursing Homes on Cape Cod

Cape Cod has many Nursing Homes to choose from.  I suggest finding out as much about each facility you are looking at as possible!  Referrals, word of mouth, State standings (use the Nursing Home Compare link below); even unannounced visits.

Nursing Home – A state-licensed residential facility that provides a room, meals, help with activities of daily living, recreation, and general nursing care to people who are chronically ill or unable to take care of their daily living needs. It may also be called a Long Term Care Facility. If it has been certified as such by Medicare, it is also referred to as a Skilled Nursing Facility.
