Virginia’s Top Rated Local® Senior Living Communities Award Winner: Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton is a 2019 award winner for senior living communities in Virginia!

If you’re looking for a loving, home-like senior living community for yourself or a loved one, look no further than Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton.

Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.80 stars, earning them a spectacular Rating Score™ of 91.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 senior living communities in all of Virginia!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“This community is filled to the brim with light and love. It is very evident that the associates love what they do in the way they care for the residents. Besides the beautiful decor, it just feels good and like a big family from the moment you walk in the door. It’s a happy place where they celebrate the lives and legacies of their residents.” – Kristy R.

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

We took a few minutes to chat with Erika Gennari, the Director of Marketing and Communications at Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton, to learn a bit about what sets them apart and how they managed to build such a powerful online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton different from the many other senior living communities in Virginia. Here’s what Erika had to say:

“There a few differences, but the major one is our signature programming. We learn each individual resident’s life story. Our program director ensures activities each month reflect the needs and desires of our residents. Sweet memories is memory program that replicates the atmosphere our residents used to work in. Stay-at-home moms can do kids’ laundry, sock matching, baby cradles, for example…It brings them back to a time that they cared for their own children and the peak of the life and the joys they had.”

We also asked Erika why they do what they do at Commonwealth and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“Our goal is to improve the lives of seniors, their families and each other. We do that through our mission statement: We Listen. We Love. We Care. We Serve. I truly believe everyone in this industry wants to care for people and make the world better. The daily focus for us is to improve those lives all around us. That does make a difference, and it’s the mantra that’s in our heads all day!”

Building Success by Asking for Feedback

Erika credits Commonwealth’s strong online reputation to the process they have in place for requesting feedback from the families they work with:

“We have a very regimented process. We have a program within our communities that supports our families in the program. All family members have access to email through the Smile program. We can request reviews asking for feedback, their experience and how they’re feeling about us. Since implementing this, we have seen the volume of our reviews go up. Not that families don’t want to share; they just don’t think about sharing their experience. The value to hear about other experiences from families is priceless. If we’re putting good stuff out there that is valuable to the families, everyone wins.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton has gotten their name out there by developing professional partnerships with hospitals and rehab centers:

“One of our strengths is in the relationships we have with our professional partners. Imagine if a family is going through something. For example, the parent fell and broke a hip and now is hospitalized and then going to rehab. We have incredibly close partnerships with all surrounding hospitals and rehabs, allowing us to be that call in planning the next steps for their loved one. We are that preferred provider, and it gives families such a warm feeling to know that they have that safety net in us.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Erika’s expert advice for those business owners:

“Surprise your families and customers with better service than they expect! Wow them right out of the gate. Don’t be afraid to ask them to share their experiences online. We make it easy for them to share their experiences. We have the Smile Program and review cards to share their experience with other families online. Most people don’t think about it, and if they aren’t thinking about it, you won’t have those reviews.”


Congratulations to the team at Commonwealth Senior Living at Hampton for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Erika, for taking the time to speak with us!

“This is a beautiful community that promotes an overall sense of well-being for all its residents. The building itself is gorgeous and has a boutique feel to it, which I love. The residents don’t get lost in the crowd as can sometimes happen in large communities. From the moment I stepped in the front door, I felt a strong sense of ‘home.’ The residents are well looked after by an attentive and caring staff; the apartments and common areas are kept up and maintained beautifully and, if you walk through the community, you will see the smiling faces of people who have chosen to make Mapleshade their home. I would recommend this to anyone needing assisted living. The Village at Mapleshade delivers on every level. Thank you!”

“This is a wonderful place for those who need extra help with [their] daily routine. The staff is dedicated, caring, and very friendly. They go out of their way to assist residents and family. I would highly recommend The Village at Mapleshade.”

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

We spoke with Stephanie Israeltom, the director of sales and marketing at The Village at Mapleshade, about the business’ impressive online reputation.

“The Village at Mapleshade is the only boutique assisted living community in the Plano area. What this means is that our dedicated staff is truly able to get to know our residents which ultimately leads to better care,” she said, when asked what it is that sets this business apart from other senior living communities in the area. “ It’s nearly impossible to walk down the hall at Mapleshade and not be stopped by someone to chat. It reminds me of the Cheers theme song and wouldn’t you want to go where not only ‘everybody knows your name’ but really cares for your wellbeing? Our community is a true gem and, whether you live or work here, you get a real sense of family when you walk through our doors.”

Building Success Through a Strong Online Presence

Texas’ Top Rated Local® Senior Living Facility Award Winner: Brighter Days Assisted Living

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Brighter Days Assisted Living has landed a spot among the top 10 senior living facilities in the entire state of Texas!

Here are just three of the many amazing reviews that led Brighter Days Assisted Living to be a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner:

“[Brighter Days Assisted Living is] a wonderful home environment for people who have reached their golden years and it allows them to live in a home atmosphere with assistance when needed. [The] staff [has] an uplifting and kind attitude.” -Renell F.

“Brighter Days is a place to call home. The staff and owners go above and beyond every day to bring so much joy to their residents. They are truly caregivers and care very deeply for the ones that live there and each family involved. I would highly recommend Brighter Days to anyone looking for a true home for their loved ones.” -Amber M.

“My mom is a resident here, she has a speech issue due to a stroke. Gretchen and her husband are sitting taking the time to figure out what my mom wants. Not one time has either of them showed any frustration on not able to understand her. They are always here on site and have great communication with residents and family… Thank y’all for what y’all do!” -Mychelle R.

Not Your Average Senior Living Facility

We spoke with Gretchen Inman, owner of Brighter Days Assisted Living, about her business’ online presence.

When asked what makes them stand out, she said, “It’s all about family. We treat everyone like family here. We provide more one-on-one care and they end up becoming family to us. Their health and mental health are very important to us and we want this to be as close to home for them as it is to us.”

Building Success Through Active Communication and Family Focused Care

Of course, we wanted to know what the Brighter Days secret to success is. Gretchen said, “Communicating with the families through social media. Especially the families that can’t visit as often as they would like. We really like to keep them up to date with their loved ones even if they can’t always visit. We have a lot of volunteer groups that come in and we like to recognize them as well. We have a local newspaper we like to reach out to and share some of our memories with for the year. We also have a small local radio station we like to work with. We have so many people that come in and out to help! Our community is excellent at helping us spread the word about the love we provide at our home.”

So, what is the advice Gretchen would give to other businesses regarding online success? “Your heart has to be in it. Don’t just do it for the money. You have to be involved in what you do and what you believe. It’s a life-long commitment that I’ll never be able to let go.”

Gretchen asked that we add her sentiment that “Brighter Days wouldn’t be so amazing if it wasn’t for our great staff and the residents and their families, as well as the many visitors (including medical staff) that frequent our home,” as she is incredibly appreciative of all those who contribute to Brighter Days Assisted Living’s success.


Thank you for speaking with us, Gretchen! Congratulations to the team at Brighter Days Assisted Living for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
