The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) has unveiled its new Senior Housing Locator powered by SNAPforSeniors®, an online navigational tool designed to help easily find senior housing anywhere in the country.
Users can search a database of more than 60,000 senior housing communities, including listings for all licensed senior housing in the U.S. Searches can be conducted by city, county, ZIP code, community name, etc., and can be refined by criteria such as desired care services, payment options, and lifestyle amenities.
According to SNAPforSeniors, there are 247 different senior housing license types across the country and new license types are emerging each year. The NAELA Senior Housing Locator offers definitions for each type.
The site also provides users with a simple way to check how nursing home and rehab communities compare in inspection reports. The listings of all Medicare Certified facilities include a link which takes users directly to each facility’s Nursing Home Compare Report page on medicare.gov, bypassing 7-10 clicks through other pages to find the page desired.
