Renaissance-Sherman and Spring Haven Retirement earned Caring Star Provider badges.

Renaissance-Sherman and Spring Haven Retirement, two Holiday Retirement communities, were selected as a “Caring Star” of 2014 as part of an annual nationwide program honoring service excellence based on consumer ratings and reviews posted on, the leading senior care website. In reviews from families, seniors, and others concerned about assisted living and Alzheimer’s care, the two Holiday communities captured a five-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.

“It’s quite the honor,” said Jamison Gosselin, vice president of marketing, communications and resident enrichment for Holiday Retirement. “Our assisted living communities provide the highest level of quality care day-in and day-out—we’re thrilled they’re being recognized for their incredible service and commitment.”

The Caring Stars 2014 award was determined from consumer ratings and reviews posted on between December 1, 2012 and December 1, 2013. To qualify, the communities had to receive all of the following:

  • Three or more reviews during the time frame with one or more of those reviews receiving a five-star rating
  • An average overall rating (across all reviews on their listing) greater than four stars
  • No unresolved negative reviews

Only the top 1% of assisted living communities nationwide achieved this recognition.

“Word-of-mouth recommendations in online reviews are consistently cited among the top considerations in the search and selection process,” said Andy Cohen, cofounder and CEO of “The Caring Stars award badge signals a history of service excellence, further helping those seeking the best assisted living or Alzheimer’s care community for their loved ones.”
