Since 1994, Best of the Web has provided users with meaningful guidance when searching through the depths of the Internet, beginning with the classic Web Directory. Today, BOTW provides a series of helpful directories, assisting users in finding the best resources and accurate information for a broad range of interests not limited to online degree programs, local businesses, and blogs as well as business and consumer websites in categories ranging from Arts to Zoology.
Statistics show that six million more senior citizens are using the web today than just five years ago, and just under half of the online senior population is searching for information about healthcare and related services. In response to these growing numbers, this week Best of the Web has launched the new and improved Senior Housing Directory. There users can search for the best local housing facilities and care services available.
"We're committed to continual improvement of our service for those actively seeking senior housing, assisted living, or retirement home information," says Brian Prince, CEO of Best of the Web. "The launch of our new website provides our users with expanded senior living resources, improved site usability, and most importantly, a significant increase in the breadth of senior communities and care providers that we offer."
Greg Hartnett, BOTW President, adds, "I'm happy to have another project where we can provide users with timely, reliable information that helps them in finding their best solution. We have always been focused on giving users quality resources, and this is a great extension to our line of offerings.”
The Senior Housing Directory focuses on helping seniors and their loved ones find solutions to eldercare issues within their local community. The directory includes authoritative information about Alzheimer’s care, separate resources for assisted living and independent living, and guidance for selecting in-home care services. Aside from a senior housing search based on location, the directory also provides in-depth community guides, active discussion forums where families can interact with caregivers, and informative articles as well as blog posts covering assisted living and related financial topics.
About Best of the Web
“The Internet’s Oldest Directory” began in 1994 as an awards site where users voted for the best websites across a spectrum of categories. It has since evolved into a comprehensive editor-built directory, categorizing and describing content-rich websites. In addition to the original Web Directory, BOTW offers the UK & Ireland Directory, Blogs Directory, Local Directory, Online Degree Directory, and now the Senior Housing Directory.
