WINTER PARK, Fla. (Dec. 14, 2017) — Holiday Retirement is thrilled to announce that recognized one-third of its senior living communities across 32 states, placing them in the top one percent of senior care providers in the country.


The annual ‘Best of Awards’ are presented by, the largest ratings and reviews site for senior care and services in North America, which provides easily accessible resources and information to help families educate themselves about senior living options and make informed decisions about senior care.


“At every Holiday Retirement community, our team members are passionate about serving seniors and their families — it’s not just a job, it’s a calling,” said Lilly Donohue, CEO of Holiday Retirement. “I am incredibly proud of the dedicated team at every one of the 87 communities recognized by this year and the continuous work they do to help their residents enjoy Holiday Retirement living.”


While the award program has honored numerous Holiday Retirement communities each year since its inception in 2013-2014, the Best of 2018 Award qualifications included much stricter standards than previous years. Senior living communities had to meet two important criteria: 1) maintain an average overall rating of at least 4.5 stars; and 2) have received four or more reviews in 2017.


“Congratulations to Holiday Retirement and its 87 communities recognized in the ‘Best of 2018 Awards,” said Eric Seifert, president and COO of “As the award program enters its fifth year of honoring the top family rated communities and care providers, we are proud to say that the bar has been raised.
