  • The Largest 150 Assisted Living and Senior Care Providers in the United States. The original data for this site was based on Government data so it included many fields like FAX number, license number and number of licensed beds. "The problem with government data is that they never keep track of other services offered by an organization. For example, they don't track if an assisted living facility also offers independent living. For this reason, Assisted Senior Living started a program for updating the data based on the corporate sites."
