This is Our “Why”

From senior housing to health, technology, safety, retirement and estate planning, and more, our mission is to empower older adults and help them age with ease. SeniorLiving.org also has the most comprehensive directory of senior living options, hands down. Our guides, reviews, and other articles are written by a team of editors and senior care experts with diverse backgrounds. This team features senior tech experts, senior safety experts, audiologists, home care experts, senior mental health experts, and senior financial law experts, to name a few.

Our resources and reviews are backed by data from reliable sources, including government sites, senior care studies, and our own expert-led research team. We use real facts and figures, along with hands-on testing, to inform our advice and recommendations. We’re known as a compassionate resource for senior living articles, reviews, guides, and studies, and we never compromise on publishing objective, unbiased information. Our 10 core ethics are at the heart of everything we do:

  • Honesty
  • Transparency
  • Accuracy and up-to-date information
  • Empathetic
  • Compassionate
  • Informative and helpful
  • Inclusive and respectful
  • Trustworthy and credible
  • Authoritative
  • Objective and unbiased

How We’re Different

  • SeniorLiving.org is a family-oriented website, not a corporate conglomerate. This means you get quality resources created by people who truly care.
  • We are intricately woven into the online senior community. Over the years, we have become a trusted source on topics of senior care and senior living.
  • Our site is constantly updated to reflect the latest senior living resources. Everything you read on our website is fresh, accurate, and helps to solve real problems of aging. If we make a mistake, we correct it as quickly as possible.
  • We have a highly-qualified team of senior care experts who keep you updated with great articles, reviews, and guides.
  • We publish something for everyone. You’ll find resources related to religious senior care, corporate senior care, living on a budget, and countless other niche topics.
  • It’s data, but it’s fun! Our resources often include neat infographics, as we’re always looking for new ways to “storytell” our data.

Our Editorial Standards

At SeniorLiving.org, we are committed to accuracy, fairness, and independence. We have a strict set of guidelines in place to ensure the quality of our content. You can read our editorial guidelines for a full look at our standards, and we’ve listed a few highlights below:

  • Robust review process: We have a hands-on, in-depth process for reviewing products and services to ensure all reviews paint the full, objective picture. We recruit seniors to provide feedback on the products we test so that we fully understand how they impact their intended audience.
  • Verified content accuracy: All of our content is reviewed by at least three people, including a writer, subject matter expert, and editor. Having multiple sets of eyes on each article guarantees that everything is accurate and unbiased.
  • Transparency: While our site is completely free to use, we receive funding from a variety of sources to sustain our resources. We are open and honest about our funding sources. Our site features some affiliate phone numbers and links. When readers click these links or make a call, we may receive a small commission. However, this never affects the price consumers pay, and it never biases our reviews.
  • By humans, for humans: All of our content is written by real people, never AI bots. Our hands-on testing, years of real-life expertise, and empathy simply cannot be replicated by a robot. This also ensures that our content is trustworthy and accurate, as we do the research ourselves rather than relying on a tool to do it.
