Americans are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and have relied on these perspectives more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its fifth year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers reliably narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the most-acclaimed communities – particularly as they gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs.

“We strive daily to deliver high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Christopher Mueller, Executive Director of North Woods Village at Edison Lakes. “On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2016.”
