Marietta, GA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
Sterling Estates in Marietta, GA has been chosen as a "Caring Star" of 2014 by Caring.com. In reviews from families, seniors, and others concerned about assisted living, Sterling Estates captured a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score), while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.
“We appreciate the tremendous positive feedback we’ve received from our residents and their families and thank Caring.com for recognizing the Sterling Estates community with their Caring Star Award,” said Marshall Gill, Executive Director/partner of Sterling Estates. “In the 18 months since we opened Sterling Estates, our 7th senior living community, we feel honored to have earned the trust of over 100 families in the Marietta and metro Atlanta area. We strive daily to deliver the healthy lifestyle and high-quality care our residents deserve. This award helps validate our delivery of that promise.”
Families across the country are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for their loved ones. In 2013 research conducted by Caring.com, 60% of family caregivers indicated that they used the Internet when researching senior care service providers and two-thirds of family caregivers took to the Web after noticing signs of memory loss in a loved one. A combined 94% percent find online reviews to be trustworthy and helpful to their search for senior care providers. Only a small minority (6%) tends not to believe them.
"Congratulations to the Sterling Estates for achieving this high praise from the residents and families they serve," said Andy Cohen, cofounder and CEO of Caring.com. "Word-of-mouth recommendations in online reviews are consistently cited among the top considerations in the search and selection process. The Caring Stars award badge signals a history of service excellence, further helping those seeking the best assisted living for their loved ones."
About 400 communities achieved the award for being in the top 1% of assisted living communities in the nation. To help these communities stand out to families searching for senior living, a special badge is featured on their listing in Caring.com’s assisted living search results.
