How to Become a SeniorAdvisor Best Care Provider Award Winner?’s Best of 2018 Care SeniorAdvisor.coms-Best-of-2018-Care-Provider-Awards....What-Are-They-1Provider Awards….What Are They?

Every day families across the nation come to the realization that they have loved ones that need help.  Help getting around, taking care of themselves, or just finding a community where they can live their lives the way they want, surrounded by others with similar lifestyles.

But this is not an easy decision to make and most families don’t know where to begin.  This is not like buying a car, or looking for a plumber or lawn care service.  Most people can just ask their friends and neighbors about those and find plenty of useful information online.  But when you are looking for a great place for your loved one, most people don’t know where to begin. helps these families every day.  We provide them with unfiltered, unbiased feedback from families and residents who have all been through this same process and have successfully found a great place to live. This is where we came up with the idea to create our awards program.  We wanted to award the communities and care providers with a chance to shine, and not just award them, but make sure we tell everyone about the great work they do.  Today more and more people use online reviews to make informed decisions and senior living is no different.

All of this started more than 5 years ago, and every year we make our criteria harder than the year before and every year we get more winners.  We are so proud and happy with the communities and care providers who win this prestigious award.  Nearly every year, these winners represent the top 1-2% of all senior living establishments.

For communities and care providers,’s Best of 2018 Care Provider Award gives you a chance to proudly display an award that was earned directly from the families and residents you help every day.  Your co-workers, families and residents can be proud of the fact that they have chosen one of the best of the best when it comes to Senior Living.

For families these awards give them the piece of mind that the community or care provider they are looking at is making other families just like theirs happy. In this sometimes difficult time, nothing makes a family member feel better than to hear the feedback of others who have dealt with similar situations as theirs.
