We are excited to announce today the launch of the SeniorHomes Rating system.

Our rating system is the first of its kind in the senior living space, providing seniors and their families an objective quality metric to help guide them through decisions. Using a simple 10 point scale, the SeniorHomes Rating provides an assessment of the overall quality of a senior living provider.

Leveraging the opinions of local experts who know the communities near them well, as well as resident and family reviews, and state inspection data, we've simplified the process of finding a new home for families by providing them an objective, consistent quality metric.

Today our ratings launched in the Phoenix, Portland and Seattle metropolitan markets. We've rated most of the independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities in those locations. If you browse the pages in our directory in these locations, you'll find ratings published both on search result pages and community profile pages.

Today we also are announcing the details of the national roll out of our rating system. Starting today in the Western US, we'll be gathering information to create ratings in the Western metropolitan markets and working our way east until, later this year, our rating system will cover most of the senior living communities in the US.
