The reviewers have spoken: these communities are the best. What matters most when it comes to senior living communities today? Here are the top trends in reviews of Caring Star communities for 2016:
1. A small, “homey” atmosphere
Every community has its own feel. You sense it when you drive onto the grounds, step into the foyer, sit down for a meal in the dining room, go for a walk or visit a room. It’s home -- a place where residents and staff are connected. A place to treasure old memories and make new ones.
2. Issues dealt with promptly
Today’s top-rated senior living communities know that dealing with issues promptly and professionally is important. Whether it’s pain or medication issues, food or minor repair and improvement issues, nothing feels better than knowing you’ve been heard and that the situation is being addressed.
3. Pet-friendliness is preferred
Growing numbers of seniors can’t imagine a meaningful life without their pets. A “fur baby” provides a sense of comfort, continuity and security to a senior’s (and anyone’s) life. As a reflection of this, more and more communities are welcoming residents’ furry friends. More and more communities have a pet all the residents and families can enjoy.
4. Opportunities to Practice Your Faith
Practicing a religious faith is something valued by many, and the communities featured as Caring Stars this year offer ample opportunities to do so with religious services and celebrations.
5. It’s Connection that Counts…Where Everybody Knows Your Name
It’s these people-to-people relationships that matter most---the friendly care staff, or maintenance person who knows everybody’s names, doles out hugs and makes sure little details don’t go unnoticed.
Caring.com helps senior living communities stand out to families in search of a place for their loved one, by a special badge featured on their listing in assisted living or Alzheimer’s care.
