Best Senior Living & Home Care - Caring Stars

Caing Stars - generic badge


The Caring Stars program uses consumer ratings and reviews to honor the best senior living communities and home care agencies in the United States -- and when originally launched in 2012, it was the first award to do so. Since then, the award has helped many family caregivers and older adults find the best providers for their senior care needs. It also generates local media coverage, boosts senior care staff morale, and helps the Caring Stars stand out from their competitors.

The deadline to qualify was September 30, 2016, and we looked at these senior care categories: independent living, assisted living, care homes, Alzheimer's/memory care, and non-medical in-home care. Winners had to:

  • Have 10 or more consumer reviews on their listing, with an overall average rating of 4.5 or higher (on a scale of 1 to 5);
  • Receive 3 or more reviews between October 1, 2015 - September 30, 2016, including at least one that was posted during 2016 and at least one that had a 5-star rating; and
  • Respond to every negative review they had ever received on

Some senior living communities have earned this award in 3 or more years since 2012. They are the Caring Super Stars of 2017.
