The new informational resource — available through www.naela.org — allows users to search a database of more than 60,000 senior housing communities, including listings for all licensed senior housing in the nation. 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.

NAELA Senior Housing LocatorAccording to SNAPforSeniors, there are 247 different senior housing license types across the country and new license types emerging each year. The NAELA Senior Housing Locator offers definitions for all of these license types.

The NAELA Senior Housing Locator also provides users with a simple way to check how nursing home and rehab communities stack up in inspection reports. The listings of all Medicare Certified facilities include a link which takes users directly to that facility’s Nursing Home Compare Report page on medicare.gov, circumventing 7-10 clicks through additional pages to find the quality information desired.
