This exclusive designation honors only the top three percent of senior care providers across the United States and Canada.

Many of the top reviews shared is what kept residents feeling safe, less isolated, and stimulated both mentally and physically. From innovative dining programs, socially-distanced activities, easily-accessible video calls with family, to having staff just be there to engage with residents and caregivers when they are needed most, Martin Boyd Christian Home provided the utmost care.

Martin Boyd Executive Director Steve Everett notes, “Martin Boyd has worked tirelessly to keep our community safe during the pandemic. We continuously adjust to the needs of our residents while navigating the hardships the COVID-19 pandemic has created for our community. We want our residents and their families to know we understand the seriousness of this pandemic and will continue to care for our residents in the manner they have been accustomed to for so many years. Providing the standard of excellence in senior care is our goal and we will always strive to maintain this level of care in our community.”

Senior Living Industry is a Critical Category in Caring for Our Aging Population 

Reflected in many of the top reviews, the Senior Living industry has remained a critical industry throughout the pandemic. A Place for Mom surveyed families that moved into a senior living community over the past six months with 86% of caregivers indicating that COVID did not influence their decision to move their loved one into a community during the pandemic, mainly as a result of seniors needing care beyond what could be provided at home. More so, almost 9 in 10 families surveyed with a loved one in Senior Living said they were satisfied/very satisfied with the care their loved one was receiving this past year, as caregiver fatigue became an unfortunate reality with 77% of caregivers reporting that they have been overwhelmed by the demands of caring for a senior since the pandemic began.

“During a year that challenged all of us, and particularly frontline healthcare workers, senior living communities demonstrated resilience going above and beyond to keep residents safe, healthy, and happy,” said Sue Johansen, Senior Vice President, Community Network, at A Place for Mom. “Of the nearly 45,000 senior living care providers in North America currently listed on and hundreds of thousands of reviews, only the top 3% were recognized with this prestigious award, simply by providing the highest level of care that residents and their families deserve.”
