Arboria of Long Grove Named 2018 Choice Community Award Winner by Holleran Consulting

By | News | No Comments

Arboria™ of Long Grove is pleased to announce it has been named a 2018 Choice Community Award Winner by Holleran Consulting, the premier research and consulting organization offering employee and resident engagement benchmarks to senior living communities across the country. Arboria of Long Grove is one of only 13 communities announced in the first round of awards, and is one of 5 communities announced that are managed by Life Care Services®, An LCS® Company.

Winners of the 2018 Choice Community Awards have exceeded Holleran Engagement Benchmark scores for either employee engagement or resident engagement in the past six months.

“We are excited to recognize the Holleran 2018 Choice Communities,” states Michele Holleran, CEO, and founder of the research firm. “It is important to have an industry gold standard such as the Holleran Benchmark, by which to measure and recognize top employee and resident engagement communities. This designation was created because Holleran knows the value of being a Choice Community. These communities boast strong cultures of employee and resident engagement where employees feel their workplaces honor them, and residents feel they are supported in their successful aging,” expresses Michele Holleran.

Holleran has the largest benchmark of senior living engagement scores by which campuses can compare performance relative to their peers. “Choice Communities earn this designation – this is the one that really counts and is legitimate. It is not an award communities apply for; it is more than a marketing technique,” explains Michele Holleran. Backed by 26 years of solid research and uncompromised measures, Holleran provides campuses with the data they need to increase their employee retention and provide a culture of engagement to their residents.

The second round of Choice Community Award Winners will be released in January 2019. Holleran is the premier provider of employee and resident engagement and satisfaction research and benchmarks, serving more than 750 not-for-profit senior living providers nationally.

Arboria of Long Grove is a rental community managed by Life Care Services—a leading manager of senior living communities nationwide. Included in the monthly rent, residents enjoy three chef-prepared meals served 7 days per week, 52 weeks per year—with an ever-changing breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. In addition to residential living with fulltime assisted living and memory care, the community offers a short-term stay option for seniors that benefits the entire family—called The Caregiver Relief Program.
