McDowell Place of Danville is pleased to announce it has been selected as a “Caring Star of 2020” for service excellence in senior living. In consumer ratings and reviews on Caring.com, McDowell Place of Danville earned a 5-star rating (the highest possible score) within the qualification time frame, while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other criteria for this national honor. McDowell Place of Danville is the only Caring Stars 2020 community in Boyle County and one of four in Kentucky to receive the recognition among 149 Caring Stars communities across the country for 2020.

“We strive daily to deliver high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Susan Matherly, director of McDowell Place of Danville.  “On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to Caring.com for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2020.”

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.

Some of the positive feedback that led to McDowell Place of Danville being a Caring Star of 2020 includes:

●     “From the moment I stepped into the building to tour, I knew this was the place for Mom.”

●     “I can’t begin to tell you how nice it is to live here.”
