NewForest Estates is pleased to announce it has been selected as a "Caring Star of 2017” for service excellence in Assisted Living . In ratings and reviews from older adults and their family members,NewForest Estates earned a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score), while also meeting other qualifying criteria for this national honor. There are only 7 Caring Star communities in Bexar county, and NewForest Estates is among 390 Caring Stars across the country.

"We strive daily to delivery high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Randy Stevens, Executive Director of NewForest Estates. "On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to for recognizing us as a Caring Star of 2017.”

Americans are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and have relied on these perspectives more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its fifth year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers reliably narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the most-acclaimed communities – particularly as they gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs.

"Congratulations to NewForest Estates for achieving this award after earning accolades from residents and their loved ones on," said Karen Cassel, CEO. "This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference NewForest Estates is making in serving older adults, and we join with the local community in celebrating their accomplishment."

Some of the positive feedback that led to NewForest Estates being a Caring Star of 2016 includes:

  • “I have lived at Newforest Estates in Assisted Living for almost 1 year now. I love that it is a small intimate home with Great staff. We have our days filled with optional activities. Our staff has been here longer than me. I never realized how difficult life had become. My decision to move was one of the best decisions I made in 2015.

  • I just had my 104th Birthday Celebration at NewForest Estates. It was a wonderful party! I received over 104 birthday cards from friends, managers and staff. I was overwhelmed with the party. I love living here! They are always checking on you to see if you are okay and if I need anything. Great service! I want to thank Brenda, Activities Director for the special work and detail she did for my birthday party. My friends are still talking about the event. I have lived here three and a half years now and I still continue to make new friends daily.

  • “My mother has been at Newforest Estates for about 4 years. We chose Newforest after visiting several other places. The personnel are friendly and helpful. The meals provided are good and my mother enjoys being able to socialize in the dining room with her friends.”

  • “Next month my Mom celebrates her 93rd birthday and one year at NewForest. I want to thank ALL the staff for making independent living so comfortable for her. Your services are great and the staff's kindness is truly genuine. So glad we found you!
