BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — According to the Long Term Care Community Coalition (LTCC), half of all seniors will need nursing home care at some point in their lives.

The nursing homes are rated on a scale of one to five stars, with one-star the lowest possible rating. The rating is based on staffing levels, health inspection outcomes and a range of quality measures and is based on data from Nursing Home Compare in August 2019.
