Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior living communities. Seniors and their families turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among senior living communities in their area. They rely on these peer perspectives as much as personal recommendations from friends, geriatric professionals and medical personnel.
Originally published in January 2012 as the first of its kind, the Caring Stars annual list has become the go-to guide of the best senior living communities nationwide–particularly helpful to families new to this market, or when researching from afar and unfamiliar with local options. To be considered for the award, Caring Stars communities meet a set of criteria based on ratings and reviews from senior living residents and their family members. Caring senior care experts also conducted a reviews-integrity audit and other quality-assurance measures before determining the Caring Stars of 2021.
"Congratulations to Pacifica Senior Living Ocala for being among these highly-rated communities achieving such significant praise from their customers in online reviews," Caring’s CEO Jim Rosenthal said. “They stand out as among the best in the nation.”
Some of the positive feedback that led to Pacifica Senior Living Ocala being a Caring Star of 2021 includes:
- "My mother moved into Pacifica Senior Living in Ocala almost a year ago. I can't say enough good things about the care she's receiving. The staff is wonderful and very attentive and friendly. We're all on a first name basis and it feels more like a family atmosphere rather than just a sterile care facility. Mom is happy and engaged and has made new friends and I know I don't have to worry about her. I'd like to thank Vicki, Stacy and Suzanne, and all the others too of course, for all they do."
- "Vicki especially and all the staff we had connection with were very friendly. The pictures in the newsletter caused my father to cry, he could not believe it was real. When we got to see the facility he realized how nice it was. He said now I have a reason to live. The view of some of the residents sitting on the front porch really gives it a home feeling. My family and father do not have the feeling that he is getting dumped off. He will be well cared for."
- "Pacifica is a very homey environment; large enough for socializing, but small enough so that I feel I know both staff and residents, they all know mom, and mom has the opportunity to know all of them. All staff members are friendly, welcoming, helpful, and professional. Before Covid , I visited a lot. More than once, I saw staff go out of their way to help residents whether or not it was in their specific role description. Pacifica administration and staff have been informative and open regarding Covid and steps necessary to keep residents safe. I really appreciate their efforts in this scary time when we are separated from our loved ones. They have also made efforts to keep family connected to loved ones as much as possible. This means a lot to me. Mom’s studio is lovely and comfortable. Pacifica provides enough activities to keep residents engaged and the staff takes into account residents’ interests. Mom loves music, and there are a lot of music activities. The food is tasty, though a little different from our Italian/Mediterranean diet. All in all, I’m very happy mom is living at Pacifica."
