Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
Seven Holiday Retirement communities were selected as “Caring Stars” of 2015 as part of an annual nationwide program honoring service excellence based on consumer ratings and reviews posted on Caring.com, the leading senior care website. In reviews from families, seniors, and others concerned about assisted living and Alzheimer’s care, each winning Holiday community captured a five-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.
“We’re proud of these communities and their associates,” said Kai Hsiao, president and CEO at Holiday Retirement. “We’ve tripled the number of our assisted living communities being recognized this year – and we’re pleased our communities are having such a significant impact on residents and their families.”
Holiday Retirement’s 2015 Caring Star communities include:
- Courtyards at Berne Village – New Bern, N.C.
- Hawaii Kai – Honolulu, Hawaii
- Isles of Vero Beach – Vero Beach, Fla.
- Mission Commons – Redlands, Calif.
- Ormond in the Pines – Ormond Beach, Fla.
- Spring Haven Retirement – Winter Haven, Fla.
- Village Place Retirement – Port Charlotte, Fla.
Families across the country are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies conducted by Caring.com, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they used online consumer reviews when researching senior living communities and two-thirds took to the internet after noticing signs of memory loss in a loved one. The Caring Stars award helps families narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the communities most-acclaimed by families like theirs.
“Congratulations to these seven Holiday communities for achieving this award after earning high praise from residents and their families,” said Caring.com CEO Andy Cohen. “This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference these communities are making in serving older adults, and we join with their local communities in celebrating this accomplishment.”
