BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Fellowship Senior Living is pleased to announce it has been selected as a 2021 Caring Star for service excellence in senior living. In consumer ratings and reviews on Caring.com, Fellowship Village in Basking Ridge 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. Fellowship Village is the only Life Plan (CCRC) Community in New Jersey to receive the Caring Star and is among 156 senior living communities of all types across the country to receive the Caring Stars 2021 Award. Fellowship Village also received this honor in 2020.
“We strive daily to provide high-quality care and services for our residents, and this award validates our delivery on that promise,” said Brian Lawrence, President & CEO, Fellowship Senior Living. “On behalf of our residents, team members and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about us, and to Caring.com for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2021.”
Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior living communities. Seniors and their families turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among senior living communities in their area. They rely on these peer perspectives as much as personal recommendations from friends, geriatric professionals and medical personnel.
Originally published in January 2012 as the first of its kind, the Caring Stars annual list has become the go-to guide of the best senior living communities nationwide – particularly helpful to families new to this market, or when researching from afar and unfamiliar with local options. To be considered for the award, Caring Stars communities meet a set of criteria based on ratings and reviews from senior living residents and their family members. Caring.com senior care experts also conducted a reviews-integrity audit and other quality-assurance measures before determining the Caring Stars of 2021.
“Congratulations to Fellowship Village for being among these highly-rated communities achieving such significant praise from their customers in online reviews,” Caring.com’s CEO Jim Rosenthal said. “They stand out as among the best in the nation.”
Some of the positive feedback that led to Fellowship Village being a Caring Star of 2021 includes:
“From our very first visit to Fellowship Village, we were impressed with the caring atmosphere and the candidness of the staff and current residents as they answered our questions. The minute we walked into our, soon to be, home we felt comfortable and we read that Fellowship handled the COVID-19 crisis very well. They were proactive and reacted very quickly to the challenges presented by the epidemic. As active people, we have been exploring the grounds and surrounding recreational opportunities. We love it here and consider it one of the best decisions we have ever made.” – Pat Pozerak
“I love living here! I never anticipated the wonderful friendships that have developed since I arrived. I have a beautiful home, I enjoy eating in the Bistro never knowing which friends I will run into or what the topic of the evening will be. There are plenty of activities, we have a wonderful new professional theater, so we don’t have to leave campus to see professional performers. We are excited about the brand new indoor-outdoor lounge.” – Beverly Siegler
