Extendicare Nursing Homes

For over 40 years, Extendicare has built its network of nursing homes and assisted living care into one of the largest of its kind in North America. With a total of over 244 facilities in Canada and in the U.S., they have over 26,000 residents in their care. While primarily specializing in nursing care and assisted living, they also have other types of care facilities as well.


In the U.S., Extendicare is its own indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Canadian born company. Under the name Extendicare Health Services, Inc. (EHSI), they operate 160 senior care facilities in the U.S. with over 15,000 available beds. They have facilities in 12 states including Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. The majority of nursing homes are in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

Medicare Inspections

With such a large network, EHSI should be well versed in what is expected from a Medicare/Medicaid facility. Unfortunately, many of their locations are well below par. Their Beaver Falls Location in Pennsylvania has the lowest rating, 1 star, in their overall, quality and staffing ratings, with 2 stars in their health rating. Meadowcrest, Abington Crest and Belair nursing homes in PA are among the others in the state alone that have 2 or less star overall ratings.


Extendicare offers a variety of inpatient care and a small amount of outpatient services. Although the majority of their homes are long-term care or nursing home facilities, they also have:

  • Assisted Living/Retirement Communities
  • Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Services
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation Services


Extendicare has had its share of lawsuits in the last few years. There have been two class action suits in Washington and Minnesota over their misleading advertising campaigns, promising services that they do not deliver. In the summer of 2012, Extendicare announced that it was leasing its 21 facilities in Kentucky due to excessive lawsuits in that state.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
