Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
SeniorHomes.com, an online directory and resource for seniors and their families searching for senior care and senior housing, today announced the recipients of its first annual “Best Senior Living Awards” in the Seattle metropolitan area. To determine the winners of the Best Senior Living Awards in and around Seattle, SeniorHomes.com along with a panel of local experts assigned numerical scores on a scale of one to ten to each facility. Scores are based on a number of weighted factors, including reviews from residents and their families, ratings from local industry experts, and public state inspection data.
“We believe that a great senior community is more than just a place for seniors to live. It’s really about creating a dynamic community that feels like a second family for our residents,” said Jane Meyers-Brown, Marketing Director for Garden Court Retirement. “We are thrilled to be honored with the recognition by SeniorHomes.com and their panel of esteemed judges as the best senior community in the Seattle area and look forward to continuing our work in building a vibrant community for our residents.”
Garden Court Retirement Community was named as the overall top community in the Seattle awards program. In addition, 30 top communities were identified in the Best Senior Living Awards Program as the “Top Rated” in Seattle. The complete list of Top Rated Senior Communities in Seattle can be viewed here.
“To determine the winner and the top rated senior living communities, we subjected the communities in the Seattle area to our comprehensive ratings methodology” said Chris Rodde, CEO of SeniorHomes.com. “There are currently more than 175 senior living facilities in the Seattle metro area, and that number is likely to continue to grow as the population ages and baby boomers need additional help. Our goal with this program is to help seniors and their loved ones make more educated decisions as well as to recognize those facilities that are raising the bar in terms of what a great senior living community can offer to its residents.”
SeniorHomes.com will be expanding its ratings program and the Best Senior Living Awards to the top 50 US metropolitan areas with the goal of identifying the top senior living communities across the US. After announcing the awards winners in all 50 markets, SeniorHomes.com will announce the Top 100 Senior Living Communities across the US later this year.
