  1. I am in the category of needing help right now but so confused as to how to go about such a search. I need help finding an assisted living placement for myself and my husband that we can afford. Can you please do a “best of” list for Visalia, CA? Visalia is the largest city in Tulare County. I don’t know who to ask for help. While cost is very much a factor to us, it is generally not given online at the various assisted living websites. Who can we ask for help with our search?

  2. You have a great list of assisted living places but I’d like to see some information of place near Mesa & Apache Junction, AZ. We live in AJ now & don’t need assisted living as of this date but we are both 81 yrs of age & we are looking to the future.
    Please see what you can find & send it to my email.

  3. If you find good assisted living in the Baltimore-Washington area, I know that many people would appreciate it, including me.

  4. Thank you for the list, is there one for Northern, NJ? Chatham, Madison, Florham Park, East Hanover? Joann Carroll

    1. Hi Joanne, We’re continually updating these “best of” lists in major metropolitan markets. Please keep checking back to see if we get closer to Northern New Jersey! Thank you for the feedback 🙂
