Two Chicago-area Autumn Leaves communities “Caring Stars of 2015″ for Service Excellence in Memory Care

Positive Feedback in Online Reviews ranks these Autumn Leaves Communities Among Best Communities in Nation

April 10, 2015 — Two Chicago-area Autumn Leaves memory care communities have been selected as “Caring Stars” of 2015, as part of an annual nationwide program honoring service excellence based on consumer ratings and reviews posted on Caring.com, the leading senior care website. In reviews from families, seniors, and others, Autumn Leaves of Orland Park, Ill., and Autumn Leaves of St. Charles, Ill., captured a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score), while also meeting other qualifying criteria for the honor.

“These awards are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the staff at Orland Park and St. Charles,” said Joe Jasmon, Chief Operating Officer of Autumn Leaves. “We’re very pleased and proud that both communities have earned such a high level of trust and satisfaction among the families of our residents.”

Families across the country are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies conducted by Caring.com, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they used the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and two-thirds took to the Web after noticing signs of memory loss in a loved one. The Caring Stars award helps them narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the communities most-acclaimed by families like theirs.

Of the 31,000 assisted living communities nationwide, only 805 earned the Caring Stars award this year, and only 31 earned the distinction in the state of Illinois. Autumn Leaves of Orland Park is one of only 15 assisted living or memory care communities in Cook County, and Autumn Leaves of St. Charles is among only three assisted living or memory care communities in Kane County to be named Caring Stars.

“Congratulations to Autumn Leaves of Orland Park and St. Charles for achieving these awards after earning high praise from residents and their families,” said Caring.com CEO Andy Cohen. “This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference Autumn Leaves is making in serving older adults, and we join with the local community in celebrating their accomplishment.”
