Fayetteville, GA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
Azalea Estates communities in Fayetteville, GA as well as Monroe, New Iberia, Slidell, and Shreveport in Louisiana have been chosen as "Caring Stars" of 2014 by Caring.com. All five communities captured the highest possible consumer ratings (5 stars) in assisted living, while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.
“We appreciate that we’ve received such positive feedback from families about the services we offer and we thank Caring.com for recognizing our communities as Caring Stars,” said Penny Miller, Executive Director of Azalea Estates of Fayetteville. “For over 15 years we have been the trusted source of senior living service in these cities and surrounding communities. We strive daily to deliver high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our delivery on 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.
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.
"Congratulations to the Azalea Estates communities 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."
