How to Sign Up

Please complete the following sign-up form. Note that the registration fee covers the costs of administering your resident and family survey.

Upon submitting the form, you will receive an email confirmation of signup. By the next business day, you will be introduced to your Program Manager. Experienced working with senior care providers, your Program Manager will guide your team through the survey process.

After your survey closes, you will receive your brand’s overall score and a discussion about your high-level survey findings. Once U.S. News releases its Best Senior Living lists, you will see which locations have made the list and your organization can request a “guidance call” about your data insights relative to others in the industry.

Participation in this program does not include comments or resident data broken down by location/department nor does it include costs for badges if you are recognized, as that is handled through U.S. News and BrandConnex directly

NOTE: You must survey by September 2023 in order to participate in the 2024 publication. Survey month is available on a first come first serve basis.
