I don't know if you saw the article posted by The Business Review, but it talked about how 6 of the area nursing homes were among the best in the nation. The report comes from the health section of the "U.S. News" I have to say , I can not be more pleased knowing this as one of my kids favorite things to threaten me with is, "Hey, be nice to me because I'm the one who will be picking out your nursing home." Maybe they will choose one of these.

Of the 37 nursing homes in the Albany area, 6 of them received the highest rating of an overall  5 stars, this is determined by judging the centers on health inspections, nurse staffing and quality measures.

One of them actually received 5 stars in each of the criteria. that one was , Schuyler Ridge A Residential H C F, in Clifton Park. 

Also receiving the overall 5 star rating were:

The Eddy Village Green in Cohoes. 

The James A Eddy Memorial Geriatric Center in Troy.

The Saratoga Care Nursing Home in Saratoga Springs. 

The St. Peters Nursing And Rehabilitation Center in Albany. 

The Avenue Nursing And Rehab Centre in Schenectady.
