At SeniorLiving.org we pride ourselves on placing seniors who need care, independent living, in home residential senior care, CCRC, or senior apartments in a place they like and feel comfortable living. Over the years we have gathered more data about senior care and ALF options than any other website, and we plan to keep it that way. If we can’t help a senior find the right type of housing for their needs, then we have not done our job. We are not a profit driven corporation claiming to help seniors find the care and accommodation they need while really chasing profits; we care and always see it through to the end until our customers are satisfied. We approach senior living without bias, always keep a stream of up to date information coming in, work with a large community of caregivers, and accommodating special needs for seniors’ assisted living is where we really shine.
