Asbury Park Honored Among Top Senior Living Communities in the Nation -- Named "Caring Star of 2019" for Service Excellence
Positive Consumer Ratings Led to This Industry-Leading Distinction from Caring.com
Newton, KS -- 3/1/2019— Asbury Park is pleased to announce it has been selected as a "Caring Star of 2019” for service excellence in senior living. In consumer ratings and reviews on Caring.com, Asbury Park earned a 5-star rating (the highest possible score), while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other criteria for this national honor. There are only 2 Caring Star 2019 communities in Kansas, and Asbury Park is among 128 Caring Stars communities across the country for 2019.
"We strive daily to deliver high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our achievement on that promise,” said Laura Voegeli, VP of Marketing for Asbury Park. "On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to Caring.com for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2019.”
Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior care providers for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple Caring.com research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among senior living communities in their area, and have relied on these perspectives as much as or more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel.
Originally launched 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 after families gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs for their elderly parents or grandparents. To be considered for the award, Caring Stars communities met a set of criteria based on ratings and reviews from senior living residents and their family members -- with those reviews analyzed by Caring.com staff (rather than computer algorithms) to determine the senior living communities with the best consumer ratings.
"Congratulations to ASBURY PARK for earning such high praise from their residents and residents’ family members,” said Jim Rosenthal, Caring.com CEO. "Achieving the Caring Stars award is a distinction worthy of significant celebration and promotion -- as it speaks volumes about the difference this senior living community is making in serving older adults. We applaud their accomplishment!"
Some of the positive feedback that led to ASBURY PARK being a Caring Star of 2019 includes:
●“The staff is very nice and helpful.”
●“After 32 years in independent living on the campus of Asbury Park, I moved into assisted living. It has been wonderful, with help in whatever way I need it. A nurse on duty if I have health questions, staff to assist as needed, food prepared and served tastefully, other residents with which to enjoy activities, a lovely apartment furnished with my own furnishings. I thank God every day for Asbury Park.”
