In brief: Research

Visit nursing homes, research facilities, use word of mouth.
There are many considerations including what additional services are provided like assisted living options, rehab, etc.

If you have not already done so, this is an excellent opportunity to speak with your loved-one about their final wishes (advanced directives, living wills, power of attorney, etc). A frank discussion of these issues is not easy but very important to ensuring that their final wishes are followed and they are well cared for.
