About the Government Score

A facility’s overall Medicare star rating compares nursing homes based on the topics patients find most important. A Medicare score ranging from 1 to 5 stars is derived from a combination of results and data drawn from three sources, including:

  • Health inspections
  • Staffing
  • Quality of resident care

It is helpful to compare nursing homes based on Medicare star ratings, but they cannot replace a personal visit. Utilize the star ratings in conjunction with other sources of information, such as online reviews and word-of-mouth. Doing so will help you determine if Fort Lauderdale Health & Rehabilitation will be a good match.

What People Say About Us

"Jason and his team are responsive and communicate very well. Jason helped me to get the benefits that I qualified for much faster than expected. I would recommend him highly. My case seemed complicated to me, but Jason explained everything in detail and made everything go quite smoothly. I interviewed several elderlaw attorneys prior to choosing Jason Neufeld."

"Quick turn around time for appointments, great response time, very thorough, never rushed through and soooo easy to do business with over the internet! Read the website info, very very helpful!"

“The attorney Jason and his team are amazing at planning and execution. Me and my family would not trust anyone else with our estate planning needs.”

“I've been very impressed! A friend referred me and I've experienced nothing but perfect service and professionalism. I am extremely grateful!”

“A strong recommendation for Jason Neufeld and his Elder Law firm - very professional, patient, reliable, and experienced. When my father fell terminally ill, I became responsible for his assets and finances overnight, including the daunting task to qualify him for Medicaid. I interviewed several elder law firms but was most impressed by Jason’s client approach and practices. Throughout the process, Jason and his team provided clear guidance and support to successfully complete all the new and complex tasks required as a POA, and more importantly he enabled us to quickly achieve our goals related to Medicaid and estate planning. His fees are more than reasonable for the level of due diligence and support we received.”
