Oak Park Retirement wins Best of Senior Living Award

Everyone at the Oak Park Retirement works hard to provide a superior experience for residents and their family members, but often the hard work of caregiving in a senior living home goes unnoticed. Not so this year. SeniorAdvisor.com just released its Best of 2016 Awards and Oak Park Retirement was one of the few to make the list.

Earning a Best of Senior Living Award is an especially important honor because the awards aren’t arbitrarily chosen by some committee – they’re based on the ratings of actual residents and their loved ones. SeniorAdvisor.com has over 100,000 reviews and ratings for senior care options across the country, all of them provided by seniors and their loved ones.

That many ratings provide them with a lot of data on what people think. They put that data to good use each year by helping seniors and caregivers looking to find a good assisted living home gain a quick snapshot of the country’s best options. To identify the best, they narrow the list of over 100,000 senior care providers included on the website to just those that have earned at least a 4.5-star rating out of 5 from reviewers.

The resulting winners are the best of the best. Only about one percent of the nation’s senior living facilities make the cut. Oak Park Retirement can count itself in exceptional company for earning a spot on the list this year.

All of the staff at Oak Park Retirement should be proud of the honor they’ve earned this year, but the other senior living homes in our midst shouldn’t feel slighted. Many of them have earned solid reviews on the website as well and some locals may find that one of the other available options is a better fit for a loved one’s needs, award or not.

The beauty of SeniorAdvisor.com is that it doesn’t stop at showing you the ratings and reviews of the senior living facilities listed on the website, it also makes it easy for users to search and browse all their senior living options based on specific preferences.

Whether your top priority is making sure the assisted living facility you choose keeps your loved one close, finding a home that offers memory care, or sticking within a specific price range, Senior Advisor makes it easier to hone in on your best options in Salisbury.

If someone you love does move into assisted living in the coming year, you and your family will have the power to help influence next year’s awards. All you have to do is visit the website and spend five minutes leaving a review to help out future seniors and their families. You can continue the cycle that helps ensure more seniors find the home that’s just the right fit for them.
