The study’s comprehensive view of the senior living resident experience provides an independent and objective measure of the overall satisfaction levels among U.S. customers.

Power award represents the voice of the senior living customer, and I can’t think of a more important voice than that of the residents we serve,” says Joel Nelson, president and CEO of LCS, the parent company for Life Care Services. “Mercy Ridge’s employees have a passion for serving seniors, and their dedication to its residents continually inspires me.”
J.D. Power surveyed 3,021 residents, family members, and friends of residents living in independent living, assisted living, or memory care communities across the United States.
