“The J.D. Power award represents the voice of the senior living customer, and I can’t think of a more important voice than that of the residents we serve,” LCS President and CEO Joel Nelson said in a statement. “I continue to be inspired by the passion our employees have for our industry and for the seniors they serve. We are grateful and humbled by this honor.”
At The Clare, we certainly mirror this resident-first mentality in our day-to-day operations.
“Our primary focus in everything we do is satisfying the residents and our customers,” Executive Director Kyle Exline says. “For us, this award validates our philosophy and how we run senior communities. Doing right by our residents is always the best thing to do.”
