July 28, 2016: Austin, TX based company SeniorAdvice.com has announced the top ten best cities for seniors.
The company has developed SeniorScore, the first comprehensive data-driven scoring system specifically designed to identify and measure the livability for seniors for any location in the United States.
The following large cities in the U.S. have been identified by SeniorScore, as the best for seniors, based on an un-biased algorithm:
1. Oklahoma City, OK
2. Austin, TX
3. Pittsburgh, PA
4. Louisville, KY
5. Ft. Worth, TX
6. Richmond, VA
7. St. Louis, MO
8. Omaha, NE

By compiling and scoring over 100 variables, SeniorScore determines how well a specific location accommodates the comfort and needs of senior citizens.
SeniorScore takes into account four different categories: health and safety, recreation and leisure, finance, and general quality of life. In addition to an overall score, SeniorScore also identifies a specific score for each of these categories in order to cater to user preferences.
SeniorScore will help seniors, who are searching for assisted living or new housing, find an adequate location based on multiple factors. It will also help users understand how their current home compares with other locations in terms of livability for older adults.
“This system not only assigns a numeric senior livability grade for cities in America, but for states and zip codes as well,” said SeniorAdvice.com CEO and Founder, Ryan Patterson. “We also have plans to expand the index to rank individual senior living facilities, and it will eventually include international destinations.” The SeniorScore is un-biased and is not influenced by personal opinion or financial interests in any way.
Launched in 2016, SeniorAdvice.com connects older people and their support systems to more than 50,000 housing options. The free senior living search engine contains comprehensive information on providers nationwide, including assisted living, nursing homes, memory care, home healthcare, independent living, adult day services, retirement homes, respite care, and hospice care.
