    Quite an accomplishment and honor! Reviews will continue to become a a strong element of online decision making. Platitudes are gone and influence from people who have experienced the service will be among the primary reasons why people decide to call or visit the senior care community. Yet there is still much education to be done to encourage and teach residents and families how to share their comments on line!
