SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Seniorly, Inc., the San Francisco-based online platform that empowers families to make better decisions when searching for senior housing options, rolled out a series of new features to make finding a senior community more transparent and easy. These new resources include consolidated ratings and reviews of senior communities, and a "compare communities" function allowing users to analyze various senior housing options side-by-side. The new site also has an upgraded family portal that helps relatives better communicate with each other as they make significant housing decisions for parents and other family members. Seniorly is excited to launch these new features as the holiday season approaches, when most families make decisions about senior housing.

"Our mission at Seniorly is to make the process of finding senior housing for parents and loved ones as easy, simple and transparent as possible," said Seniorly CEO Arthur Bretschneider. "That's why we're so excited about these new tools that we are rolling out on the Seniorly platform. Our new review feature gives families a more complete picture of senior communities in order to pick the best choice. And our improved search filters, family portal and 'compare properties' tool makes the overall search process even easier."

Seniorly works with over 400 senior communities in the Bay Area (about 20% of the local senior community industry). More than fifty percent of the small and medium-sized businesses that have signed up on the Seniorly platform have no other web presence outside of the Seniorly site. That means until now, many family members making important decisions for their loved ones were only seeing a fraction of the options that are actually available.

"Seniorly is changing the way people find senior housing options for themselves or for loved ones by empowering them with the necessary tools for informed decision-making," said Lily Sarafan, CEO of Home Care Assistance. "Unlike the traditional options that lack transparency, force families into giving up personal information, or give seniors and their families limited options, Seniorly offers a superior experience that includes free access to more local options and comprehensive information than anywhere else."

Since launching less than a year ago, Seniorly has helped match hundreds of families with local senior housing communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and most recently Los Angeles, by bringing more comprehensive information online than anywhere else. The platform also provides small and medium senior housing businesses an online profile that allows them to market their unique values to the families who are in search of communities for their loved ones. All of Seniorly's services are provided to families at no-cost.
