Seattle, WA – February 4, 2013 –, an online directory of senior care and senior housing services, announces the launch of the 2013 Best Senior Living Communities in the Portland, Oregon area. This awards program aims to identify the top senior living providers in cities across the United States. Nominations are being accepted beginning today for assisted living, independent living and memory care communities in the Greater Portland region.

The Top 100 Senior Living Communities in the US will be named at the end of the awards program.

“In our consumer research and in conversations with seniors and their families every day, we hear a unanimous call for better information to help them choose a senior living community” said Chris Rodde, CEO of “The focus of our awards program is to identify and recognize the best communities as well as to provide objective information to help consumers make the best choices for their families.”

The program identifies top senior living communities by having residents and families vote to narrow the list of nominations to a set of finalists. Communities that reach the finals will be evaluated by a panel of local senior care experts using a set of standardized rating criteria. Winners and Honor Roll will be selected using a combination of resident and family surveys, expert reviews, state inspection data and other quality metrics. The winner and honor roll for the Greater Portland area will be announced on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013.
