When considering a new restaurant, movie or gadget, many people turn to websites that collect reviews from consumers. A new website hopes to provide the same type of advice about senior housing.
Senioradvisor.com, an offshoot of senior referral service A Place for Mom, has a search feature that locates nearby senior housing based on the ZIP code you enter. You can select the type of housing you are looking for, including Alzheimer's care, assisted living and independent living.
Many of the places that turn up on the search also have star ratings and user reviews. The senioradvisor .com website is free.
