The Inn at Freedom Village has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home for short-term rehabilitation in 2022-2023 by U.S. News & World Report, according to MyChesco.
“We are proud to achieve this best-in-class rating from U.S. News & World Report,” said Danielle Geyer, executive director of Freedom Village Brandywine. “At The Inn at Freedom Village, residents are treated as treasured family members – whether someone is here for a short-term or long-term stay, our genuinely caring staff takes time to get to know them well, and this ensures the best care possible for everyone who comes to our community.”
The annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, now in its 13th year, assist prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions in consultation with their medical professionals about where to receive short-term or long-term nursing home care.
Only 16 percent of U.S skilled nursing facilities earned the “Best Nursing Home” designation this year.
For 2022-2023, U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety, infection rates, staffing, and health inspections.
The Best Nursing Homes methodology factors data such as resident care, safety, and outcomes.
To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Both short- and long-term ratings include data on the consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, and success in preventing ER and hospital visits.
The long-term care rating also includes measures of whether a home changed ownership and how well they were staffed on weekends.
The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections, and making sure residents are able to return home.
The Inn at Freedom Village is part of Freedom Village at Brandywine, a Life Plan Community in West Brandywine that has been providing a maintenance-free lifestyle to seniors for over 25 years.
Freedom Village features 289 independent living condominiums and 28 terrace homes. It also offers 56 personal care residences; 49 skilled nursing suites, including nine private rehabilitation suites; and 14 memory care suites.
