Freedom Village Receives 5-Star Medicare Rating

independent wellness2Medicare recently awarded Freedom Village Skilled Nursing in Lake Forest, CA the highest quality recognition seal that can be received, the 5-Star Medicare rating. Freedom Village is one of a select few skilled nursing communities to receive such a high rating in all of Orange County.

How does a senior or their family member select a QUALITY skilled nursing community?

  1. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created the 5-Star quality rating system to help patients and their families evaluate and compare nursing homes.
  2. The CMS Nursing Home Compare Website features this quality rating system which gives nursing homes a 1 to 5 star rating. Nursing homes with 5-stars are considered to have quality much above average, while nursing homes with 1-star are considered to have quality much below average.
  3. The rating is made up from the following areas: Health Inspections, Staffing and Quality Measures. Each of these areas is given a separate rating and then combined for an overall rating for the nursing home.  Freedom Village Skilled Nursing is proud to have Registered Nurses on the floor around the clock.
  4. Families and caregivers are encouraged to use the 5-star rating in conjunction with visiting skilled nursing communities, asking questions, and using other resources to help determine the best option for their loved one.
