That we've been able to earn and receive so many positive reviews from consumers looking to Caring.com as part of their selection process is indeed an honor.
CHICAGO IL (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
Vi at La Jolla Village, San Diego, CA, and Vi at The Glen, Glenview, IL, have received a nationwide designation recognizing service excellence based on consumer ratings and reviews. The 2013 designation is the result of the annual program of Caring.com, a leading website for those seeking senior care.
The Vi family of companies develops, owns and operates older adult living communities.
In being named a “Caring Star” of 2013, the two Vi continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) captured the highest possible rating of five stars, while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.
“This is a great acknowledgement for us,” said Chrystal Chang, Director of Digital Marketing for Vi . “We are aware that online ‘world-of-mouth’ is growing in importance in the senior care industry. That we’ve been able to earn and receive so many positive reviews from consumers looking to Caring.com as part of their selection process is indeed an honor.”
Andy Cohen, co-founder and CEO of Caring.com, said, “The Caring Star status is very meaningful and helpful to those seeking a local assisted living and/or an Alzheimer’s care community. In our research, we’ve found that prospective residents and their families consider word-of-mouth recommendations in online reviews among the most important factors in their search and selection process. Congratulations to Vi.”
The Caring Stars of 2013 list is based on consumer ratings and reviews that were posted on Caring.com between Dec. 15, 2011 and Dec. 1, 2012. To qualify, the community had to receive three or more reviews during this timeframe, at least one of which being a 5-star rating, an overall average rating (across all reviews) equaling greater than 4 stars, and no unresolved negative reviews.
Vi CCRCs offer independent living with a combination of a private residence, services, amenities and care (for example, assisted living, memory support care and skilled nursing care).
