It does appear that in some cases workers at the nursing homes did fill in ballots for seniors who were effectively mentally incompetent and criminal charges have been recommended. Here's a good article on the issues:

Racine County Sgt. Michael Luell said another seven residents with serious cognitive problems were "victimized" because trained poll workers were not allowed on-site, leading to nursing home workers allegedly filling out information on ballots and ballot envelopes for the residents whom he said were not able to make sound decisions.

As a result, Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling recommended criminal charges be filed against five of the six elections commissioners over their advice to local election clerks.
As for the supposed amazing turnout by nursing home residents:

Data provided to the Journal Sentinel by Milwaukee Election Commission Director Claire Woodall-Vogg show no nursing homes in the largest city included in Gableman's review experienced 100% turnout.

Overall, turnout in nursing homes in Milwaukee was 79%, according to data provided by Woodall-Vogg. And a smaller number of Milwaukee residents voted in such facilities in 2020 than in 2016, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
