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.
It is one thing to postpone talks with your boss, friends or the IRS, but do not treat the conversation you need to have with your parents about long-range planning the same way. I promise; you will thank me later.
