The top-tier of in-home in senior living and home care is best represented by the 2016 Annual Best of Awards. This exclusive designation recognizes in-home care, assisted living, and other senior living providers that are in the top one percent of senior care providers throughout the United States and Canada.

Winners of the Best of 2016 Awards are chosen according to reviews written by seniors in their families. Of the nearly 100,000 providers currently listed on, these 1,000 or so facilities have been recognized as the best according to those who matter most – the consumers.

Senior care just doesn’t get much better than Americare. Based in America’s heartland, with individual communities located in Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee, the senior care provider is a favorite among area seniors.

The services offered by Americare are varied. They are tailored to each individual senior to provide the absolute best service possible. Their most popular programs include independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

Another popular program offered by Americare is rehab-to-home. Following an illness or injury, seniors are given short-term nursing care to get them back onto their feet. Their goal is to return the senior home as quickly as possible – and keep them there. A customized rehabilitation plan is devised that ensures long-term success and decreases the chances of re-admission to the hospital.

No matter what program you choose, you can count on Americare to be there for you or your loved one. Their philosophy is focused on person-centered care, meaning they put the individual first. They know there is no one size fits all solution to senior care. So they take each individual’s needs and preferences into account before making decisions.

Americare has maintained an outstanding online reputation for several years, and regularly receives highly positive reviews from their families like the ones below from some of their winning communities:

“This is a beautiful facility with a well trained caring staff. The secured unit has a private backyard that the residents can go to and enjoy outside activities giving them a greater sense of freedom. This is a wonderful place for my mom. If you’re looking for a place I highly recommend Ravenwood or the Arbors at Ravenwood.” – Daughter of resident

Everyone there is just really very sweet. They have been very good to mom. They are very good at responding any time we have any questions or requests.” – Family member of resident

“There has always been someone to greet me at the door each time. Everyone at Dogwood Bend keeps a smile on their face and was very approachable which also allows the morale of this community to be high. The staff is always prepared to help a resident and/or visitor when there is a question or concern. Overall, Dogwood Bend is a home away from home and I would recommend anyone looking for an assisted living facility here.” – Family member of resident
