On Monday, U.S. News and World Report published a “Best of Senior Living” report that lists and rates aging services providers in Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Continuing Care Retirement Community categories. We wrote an article that reviews important components of that study, ranging from how the data is gathered, to the listings and ratings process, and shares the key fact that all providers – regardless of participation – will have webpages for their organization hosted with U.S. News. These webpages will lead the potential consumer either to a third-party consumer broker, or to the provider organization itself, depending on whether that provider participated in the report. All members are encouraged to seek out their webpages and check the accuracy of the information found there.
