The CANHR Nursing Home Guide is a powerful tool that holds
detailed information on every state-licensed nursing home in California.
You may search for sets of facilities by City or County, and individual
facilities by facility name or address. You may also narrow your
searches to show only facilities that have indicated that they offer
certain services that you can specify.
Once you have found one or more nursing homes, there are three levels
of detail at which you may look at them:
1. Contact listinglists facility names, addresses, and phone
numbers, in a compact format.
2. Comparison listinglists facility contact information, plus
a table for each facility showing
totals by year of regulatory history statistics.
3. Detail listinglists detailed information for an individual
facility, including brief descriptions
of fines (citations) issued, and facility services and business
Keep in mind that, for the comparison listing and the detail listing,
there are pages that will allow you to print in compact format.
Many other resources, including fact sheets, news, and an overview
of CANHR's other services are available on CANHR's main website
IMPORTANT TIP: While using this site, it is important that
you use only the buttons and menus provided on the web-pages for
navigation, and NOT the "Forward"/"Back" buttons
on your browser's toolbar; otherwise, information related to your
search may be lost, forcing you to begin your search anew.

1. By City
2. By County
3. By facility name and/or address
The Search-by-City option is the one that comes up when you first
go to search for a facilityto select another type of search,

Searching by Services
In some cases, when you know that the person being placed will require
a particular service, you may wish to narrow your search results
by looking only for facilities that offer that service.
The City and County searches may be "refined" by filtering
to find only facilities that have responded to CANHR questionnaires
and said that they offer certain services that you may specify.
To perform a "refined" search, select either the "search
by city" or "refined search by county" option. Once
you have entered the city or county name, select one or more of
PLEASE NOTESelect only those services that are essential.
Selecting fewer options will yield more results.
ALSO NOTEWith the exception of Medi-Cal and Medicare*,
only facilities that have answered CANHR questionnaires and said
that they offer the requested service(s) will be found. In some
cases, facilities that offer the requested service(s) will not be
found because they have not answered CANHR questionnaires.
*Data regarding whether a facility accepts Medi-Cal and Medicare
comes from other sources, so selecting just Medi-Cal and/or Medicare,
and no other service(s), will not limit the search to facilities
that have answered questionnaires.
