Best of 2017 Senior Living’s Best of 2017 Senior Living Winners

Online Ratings and Reviews From the Best Senior Care Providers in North America

We recently announced the Best of 2017 Senior Living Awards. Over 1,600 assisted living, in-home care, and other senior housing providers across the United States and Canada were recognized this's Best of 2017 Senior Living

This is the fourth year that has recognized the top Senior Care Providers with our Best of Awards. These awards celebrate the communities and agencies that have received outstanding feedback from their families on This year our awards recognized the top 2 percent of senior care providers according to their customers.

The top three U.S. cities in 2017 with the most winners were San Antonio assisted living (20 winners), Houston assisted living (13 winners), and a two-way tie between Chicago assisted living and Tucson assisted living (both with 11 winners). California, Texas, and Florida represent the top three states.

More than half of the winners offer more than one type of care to their seniors. Assisted living was the most represented care type at 57.2 percent, followed by Alzheimer’s care at 46.1 percent.

Each year we work to make these awards slightly harder to obtain and each year our communities rise to the occasion. To qualify for a Best of 2017 Award, communities must have maintained an average overall rating of at least 4.5 stars and have received three or more new reviews in 2016. Also, there are several behind the scenes criteria we use to ensure we keep the awards competitive and extremely prestigious.  We’ve seen a huge increase in the overall number of reviews for our communities showing that as more families look for the best care for their loved one that they rely on and create direct feedback about the senior communities.  This not only helps families looking for senior care, but also ensures that the best communities get the attention they have earned and deserve.
