Nursing Homes in Mesa, Arizona

It’s important to understand how many elderly people are in Mesa before looking into the facilities that are present in our city. According to the 2019 U.S. Census Bureau, 17 percent of Mesa’s population are 65 years of age and over. While that doesn’t mean that all of those aged over 65 are in a nursing home, many who are in the higher ages could be.

The census also shows that 8 percent of Mesa citizens are aged 70 to 79 and 4 percent are aged 80 and up. These groups are higher percentages than the amount of people in these age demographics in Phoenix or Chandler. People in these demographics are much more likely to be in long-term care facilities because they are older and might not be able to care for themselves.

While there are plenty of nursing homes with great ratings in Mesa, other facilities don’t have as good ratings for the care that they provide. According to the Medicare nursing home locator, there are 20 facilities in the Mesa, AZ area that have a rating of below average or much below average.

Of these 20 nursing homes, 5 are listed as being cited for potential abuse. It’s important to protect your loved one from abuse as much as possible, but no matter how hard you try, their facility still might cause them harm. That’s when you’ll need a Mesa, AZ nursing home abuse lawyer to help you hold their long-term care facility accountable.
