Honors 2015 Best of Senior Living Award Recipients 2015 Best of Senior Living Award

Families’ Online Reviews Rank Senior Care Providers in Top 1% Nationwide

AUSTIN, Tex. December 10, 2014 —, the premier ratings and reviews site for senior care and services nationwide, today announced the Best of 2015 Awards. Nearly 900 assisted living, in-home care, and other senior housing providers across the United States were recognized this year.

Now in their second year, the Best of 2015 Awards celebrate the best of the best in American senior care and are only given to communities and agencies that have consistently received outstanding feedback from families on the website. This exclusive designation places the winners in the top one percent of senior care providers nationwide according to those who matter most – their customers.

At 4.5, 4.1, and 3.3 percents respectively, Atlanta assisted living, Chicago assisted living, and Dallas assisted living providers represent the top three U.S. cities with the most winners. California, Texas, and Florida represent the top three states.

“We launched with two goals in mind: first, we wanted to identify and celebrate the best-performing senior care providers and second, we wanted to give families a tool to identify the businesses that will take great care of their loved ones,” said Eric Seifert, President of “These awards are a capstone on those two goals. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to thank companies and professionals who commit to providing exceptional service to the loved ones we entrust in their care.”

According to a joint study by and A Place For Mom conducted in May 2014, online reviews have a profound impact on the purchasing behavior of consumers looking for senior care.

To qualify for a Best of 2015 Award, winners must have an average overall rating of at least 4.5 stars and a minimum number of reviews. Additionally, winners must offer at least one of the following types of care: assisted living, Alzheimer’s care, independent living, low-income senior housing, skilled nursing, or in-home care. This is the first year in-home care providers were eligible to receive the award.

Winners received framed certificates, exclusive award badge stickers and decals, and a comprehensive kit to help them publicize their success and share their award with the broader local community through print and web channels.

    I would like information about which states are most elderly friendly in terms of paying for assisted living. I know that in Ohio Medicare pays for assisted living whereas, in Texas it generally does not. I find it difficult to accept that Texas is among the top 3 states in a list of Best of Senior Living. While I realize that the ratings are based on family feedback, I’m wondering if there was any feedback from families whose loved ones were forced out of assisted living when their money ran out. My 91 year old grandmother doesn’t belong in a nursing home and she’s very independent, but not able to live alone. She loves her home at the assisted living facility and refuses to live with family. Unfortunately, she outlived her money. With no long-term care insurance, it falls to my 70 year old mother who is an only child and me. I am also an only child and have 2 kids in college. There are no wealthy cousins or nameless benefactors. Just us and a state that appears to care little what happens to it’s elderly.
