Silvergate San Marcos wins 2021 Best of Senior Living award

SAN MARCOS — Silvergate San Marcos, the area’s premier senior living community for more than 25 years, has once again been selected as a 2021 Best of Senior Living Award Winner on, the country’s largest online ratings and reviews site for senior care and services. 

“We are so honored have been selected for this award and recognized yet again by another national rating service for the outstanding care and exemplary service our entire team provides for our residents.  Silvergate is one of only a handful of senior living communities in the area to win the 2021 Senior Advisor award,” said David Nelson, Marketing Director for the community.  “We are incredibly humbled by all of the positive feedback we received online from our residents, their families and the community.  While managing through this pandemic, it means even more to us right now.” is in their seventh year of hosting the Best of Senior Living Awards which showcase the retirement communities delivering outstanding care and meeting the highest standards of service in independent living, assisted living, and memory care.  The award is based on online reviews written by seniors and their families who have direct experience with the community.  This exclusive designation honors the top 1% of senior care providers across the country.  Silvergate San Marcos regularly receives exceptionally positive reviews from their senior residents and their families like this one:

“My father moved to Silvergate two years ago and is very happy there,” said Rosemary Trujillo, a relative to a Silvergate resident.  “The Silvergate staff is pleasant, helpful and caring, and they treat him well.  Silvergate management does a good job of keeping us informed on matters related to the facility and any impact on residents.”

Online reviews help Americans who are considering retirement living to research communities of interest and to ultimately select the senior care solution that best fits their needs.   Seniors and their families turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among retirement communities in their area.  They rely on these peer perspectives as much as personal recommendations from friends, geriatric professionals and medical personnel when making the significant decision to move to senior living.

“We’re proud to be among the top one percent of family-rated communities and care providers in the nation,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for Silvergate San Marcos.  “We knew the bar for standards had been raised this year.   We also knew that only the best communities and care providers would be recognized because they made the criteria harder than ever this award season.  I’m proud to say our amazing team of nurses, caregivers and staff rose to the occasion and we can once again be counted among the best-of-the-best in senior living providers.”
