Online Reviews from Seniors and Their Families Reveal Which Retirement Communities, Assisted Living, and Nursing Homes Are Top-Rated for Excellence in Senior Living and Care

Charlotte, NC; Nov. 15, 2022: Caring.com — a leading senior living referral service and a top site for senior care reviews  — today announced the “Caring Stars 2023” list featuring the best senior living communities and nursing homes in the United States according to online ratings and reviews from seniors and their families. 

Launched in 2012 as the first reviews-based service excellence award in the senior living industry, Caring Stars is now the most trustworthy source online for quickly and easily identifying the best senior living communities based on their customers’ feedback. Seniors and their families can rely on Caring’s high-integrity auditing of submitted reviews.

For senior living communities recognized as Caring Stars, there is no award application nor fees for review surveys and promotional licensing. This “best senior living” award is earned through high-standard, reviews-based eligibility criteria, and winners do not need to be partnered with Caring.com to qualify. 

Caring Stars winners in 2021 and 2022 who are partners with Caring on average attracted nearly twice as many new resident inquiries and almost three times as many move-ins as Caring’s community partners without the award. This proprietary data is another signal of the power of consumer reviews in helping seniors and their families find the best senior living.

Caring Stars 2023 includes 329 senior living communities in 39 states, with California, Texas, and Florida having the most winners (62, 30, and 27, respectively). These communities and care homes had an overall average rating of 4.5 stars or higher, and public-facing business responses to any 1-star or 2-star negative reviews. They also had to meet specific criteria for review volume and recency, and have at least one 5-star published review in 2022. 

“Congratulations to the Caring Stars of 2023 for achieving such significant praise from their customers in online ratings and reviews!” said Caring.com’s CEO Jim Rosenthal. “We applaud all senior living communities nationwide that are delivering excellence in their service offerings. We share in the mission to help as many seniors and their caregivers as possible, and Caring Stars is one of many ways we provide highly-relevant information, insights and expertise to guide and support the senior living search and selection process.”
