January 25, 2012 (Raleigh, NC) — Magnolia Glen, a member of the Kisco Senior Living family of communities, located in Raleigh, North Carolina was recently named a “2012 Caring Star”, a new nationwide designation based on consumer ratings and reviews recognizing service excellence. In reviews from families, seniors and others concerned about assisted living care, Magnolia Glen captured the highest possible rating of five stars on Caring.com, a leading internet source for senior care reviews and an online destination for those caring for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones, with nearly two million visits to the website monthly.
Magnolia Glen was one of 119 assisted living communities in 24 states across the United States ranked as a “Caring Star” of 2012. Currently, there are over 38,000 assisted living communities serving more than a million seniors nationwide, according to the Assisted Living Federation of America.
The Caring Stars of 2012 list is designed to help consumers make assisted living choices, and to provide direct insights to providers about the preferences of families and residents in senior care. In addition to giving star ratings, reviewers are asked to provide specific details on their experiences and observations, adhering to Caring.com’s Review Guidelines with their comments.
Characteristics consumers often discussed in a five-star rating for an assisted living community include care that is personalized and provided with genuine concern, home-like amenities and decor, a wide variety of activities, and a high level of cleanliness.
The Caring Stars of 2012 for Assisted Living was based on consumer ratings and reviews posted on Caring.com during the past year and tallied in December 2011. This year is the first of what is expected to be an annual ranking and go-to guide for consumers.
