‘Best of’ award for Point Defiance Village

A ratings service for senior care has ranked Point Defiance Village in Tacoma as one of its Best of 2017 award winners.

The award from SeniorAdvisor.com recognizes the Holiday Retirement-owned community for receiving consistently high marks in a five-star ratings system from residents and their families throughout 2016.

“This award is not something that just happens. It is a direct result of the team at Point Defiance Village and their hard work and compassion for our residents,” said Lilly Donohue, chief executive officer of Holiday Retirement.

To qualify for a Best of 2017 Award, communities must offer either assisted living, Alzheimer’s care, independent living, low-income senior housing, skilled nursing or in-home care in the United States or Canada, have an average overall rating of at least 4.5 stars, and have received three or more new reviews during 2016.

It’s the second recent industry award for Point Defiance Village, which also received Caring Star recognition from Caring.com’s nationwide consumer ratings.

Point Defiance Village is one of 91 communities operated by Holiday Retirement that received the latest award.

SeniorAdvisor.com provides online access to the information families need when making a senior care decision, and features trusted reviews and advice from local residents and their loved ones, said Eric Seifert, president of the rating service.

Holiday Retirement, which has been in business since 1971, has more than 300 retirement communities, making it the second-largest senior-housing operator in the US.
