Radiant Senior Living Independent Living and In-Home care community located in Medford, Oregon, Barnett Woods, has been selected as a "Caring Star of 2019” for service excellence in senior living. In consumer ratings and reviews on Caring.com, Barnett Woods earned a 5-star rating (the highest possible score) while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other criteria for this national honor. Barnett Woods is among 144 Caring Stars communities across the country for 2019.
Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior care providers for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple Caring.com research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among senior living communities in their area and have relied on these perspectives as much as or more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel.
“We are honored to be recognized for our services to seniors in the Rogue Valley,” said Barnett Woods Executive Director Charley Parker. “We pride ourselves on making every person who walks through our door feel welcome in our community. Being there for others and helping them find the right place, is important to us.”
Originally launched in January 2012 as the first of its kind, the Caring Stars list has become the go-to guide of the best senior living communities nationwide — particularly helpful after families gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs for their elderly parents or grandparents. To be considered for the award, Caring Stars communities met a set of criteria based on ratings and reviews from senior living residents and their family members — with those reviews analyzed by Caring.com staff (rather than computer algorithms) to determine the senior living communities with the best consumer ratings.
