The Best Senior Living Awards aim to recognize the top senior living communities in the largest 50 U.S. metropolitan markets using a combination of resident and family surveys, expert reviews, state inspection data and more.
The 2013 Best Senior Living Communities - Portland contest will award the communities in the Greater Portland area that stand out for their high quality reputation and exemplary track record.
How the Contest Works

If you do not know if your community profile has been claimed, search our site for your community or call one of our advisors at 888-387-0587 for help. Claiming a profile is free and only takes about 10 minutes.
All nominations must be submitted by March 25, 2013, 5pm PST. The first 25 communities to enter the contest will receive our Vote Booster Kit for free.

During the voting period, residents, families, and the general public will be able to endorse nominated communities by posting reviews on SeniorHomes.com. The ability to review communities in Greater Portland on SeniorHomes.com will not be live until February 25, 2013. Each review that is posted between February 25, 2013 and April 22, 2013 at 5pm PST and approved by our editors with an overall rating of 4 or 5 , will count as a vote in the contest.
