Scoring

Ease of Use

Users can filter results using helpful organizational tabs like "Assisted Living," "Alzheimer's Care," "Nursing Homes," and "Independent Living." Each of these tabs leads to a page with informative explanations of related issues, as well as a search bar where users can enter a location to return relevant facilities. Note the site often prompts users to enter an email address in order to access all reviews, ratings, and pricing.

Visual Design

Plain but informative, with a snapshot of a provider results page as their homepage image. Provider results pages are cluttered but once the user scrolls down, the information is listed clearly.

Quality

The site's reviews are relevant and fairly comprehensive. Nearly all consumer reviews have been verified by the site's staff, so users can trust these reviews to be the actual experiences of visitors or residents. Visitors will need to register with the site to access the full content, but there's still a good amount of quality information available for free.
