We hope that you enjoy the data presented in the Home Care section of our site! We strive to provide a comprehensive guide about each of the agencies listed in the directory in order to help you make an informed decision about what will work best for your own situation.

As with the other local facilities listed on our site, reviews and comments about each agency can be submitted by the public, but the majority of the data is provided directly by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and includes all of the Home Health Agencies that are currently registered with Medicare.

The datasets are typically updated quarterly so that you can see the most current scores on dozens of criteria for each agency. The “overall rating” is calculated by combining the most relevant metrics from recently-reported Medicare data, as well as the reviews submitted by the community on seniorresource.com. Our goal is to provide the most complete rating that accurately communicates the opinions of people who have chosen to participate in the review process. Thank you to all participants who have taken the time to provide feedback!

More information about the government program and data can be found at Medicare.gov. For our own coverage of the most important Medicare topics, please visit our Medicare Resource Center. To continue exploring local options for care near you, return to our section on Home Care.


Change Log

This is a list of notes about how the data from the government has changed with each update. We provide this insight in case you have questions about when certain metrics were added, removed, or other changes introduced.

10/30/2020:

  • Government Medicare Data updated for all agencies and patient surveys
  • Government data removed the Quality Measure metric “How often patients developed new or worsened pressure ulcers” and added in its place “Changes in Skin Integrity Post-Acute Care: Pressure Ulcer/Injury.” Since the significance of the change from the previous data is ambiguous, we did not import this metric for 10/30/2020, but left the previous data “How often patients developed new or worsened pressure ulcers,” which will display as “not provided” for 10/30/20.

4/30/2020:

  • Government Medicare Data updated for all agencies and patient surveys
  • Government data no longer contains the Quality Measure metric “How often patients had less pain when moving around” therefore historical data was removed from seniorresource.com as well.

2/20/2020:

  • Government Medicare Data updated for all agencies and patient surveys
