Launches First Canada-Wide Reviews for Senior Living, a leading Canadian online directory of senior housing and senior care options, launched first Canadian consumer reviews platform for senior living. This new platform will allow residents of senior living communities, their caregivers, and those who toured to post reviews of communities listed on Reviews can be posted for all assisted living, independent living, memory care communities, and home care agencies across Canada.

Seniors and their family members can share their first-hand experience with the senior living community they lived in or visited, as well as rank them on specific categories, such as staff, quality of care, activities and food.

Consumer reviews are a great benefit to senior living providers as well. Reviews can significantly increase conversation rates for your residences. Research shows that retirement residences listings with reviews get 5 (five) times more inquiries compared to the ones without. In addition, consumer reviews are significantly more trusted - nearly 12 times more - than descriptions that come from vendors, according to a survey by eMarketer.

In addition, senior living providers will have the ability to respond to each review that was submitted allowing them to thank the consumer for a positive review or address any issues that consumers have had with their residence. Providers will also have the ability to verify the reviewer – if the provider can confirm the reviewer as a current or past resident or that they toured the community, such review will be marked as “Verified”.

To post a review, consumers just need to go to the provider profile page on and select the “Reviews” tab.  Alternatively, the communities themselves can solicit reviews from current or prospective residents and their family members by either directing them to the community listing page on or by filling out a SeniorsZen review card.
