These reviews are a time-saver for people who can’t spend the day touring one retirement community after another. -Madeline G., La Jolla (SD), CA

WHY WE DO THIS

We believe in helping people make educated decisions about their families’ living arrangements. Providing well-researched information and thoughtful reviews about Assisted Living facilities empowers families to make choices that fit their needs.

We hire local people to visit Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care communities and report back on the real stories about these facilities — from how they look and sound to the way they smell.

The information we provide is not biased or influenced by external compensation. We carefully present reviews and educational guides for people looking to improve their lifestyles. In short, we approach senior living research and writing as if we were shopping for our own mother or father.
