Our Approach to Content Creation
As part of our mission to simplify the discovery and decision process for families searching for senior living, Seniorly regularly produces content and tools designed to educate and empower families. The decision to move to a senior living community has numerous consequences on the mental health, physical health and financial health of older adults and their families. As such, the editorial and content teams at Seniorly take our responsibility for producing quality content and tools seriously. Our efforts to maintain the highest standard of quality are guided by the following practices and principles:
Tools to Support Content Creation
As a technology-driven company based in San Francisco, we happily embrace new technologies and tools that help us deliver better content and information to our users. Seniorly occasionally uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools to help us generate templated content at scale. Depending on the scale of the task, this may either content undergo randomized sample testing with real humans to review, or if the output is smaller, humans review all content produced using these tools. In short, all content produced with the aid of artificial or processing tools undergoes rigorous human review.
While there is ample opportunity to produce content related to wider category of aging, Seniorly consciously creates and curates content related to the following areas which are consistent with our areas of expertise:
- Senior living search and discovery: how to find and evaluate senior living solutions based on individual needs and constraints
- The senior living decision process: factors and processes to consider when choosing a senior living community.
- Social engagement for older adults: the importance of continued engagement for older adults
- Caregiver concerns: content related to the unique concerns of non-professional caregivers; usually the family members of older individuals
Expert Review Panel
As an added measure, Seniorly also engages external experts in the fields of senior living, senior finance, the science and medicine of aging, and real estate for any and all content that is deemed to be of considerable importance to decisions a reader might reasonably make using information from our site.
Our expert reviewers are asked to ensure that content reflects data-driven research and current scientific consensus around the topic in question and that it is factually acccurate. Additionally, reviewers may provide additional research and/or studies that bolster content theses.
While we make every attempt to ensure that our content and publications are valuable and worthy of trust, there may be occasions on which we need to make corrections or updates. Depending on the type of error, Seniorly editors may:
Remove or unpublish an article: if a content piece is deemed to be of material value to a decision which impacts mental, physical or financial health, Seniorly may unpublish an article while we make corrections and resubmit to our external review panel. The article may be republished after a review process and the updated date on the article will reflect the date on which it was republished.
Update an article: if a content piece is in need of minor correction, such as a typographical correction, citation correction or date correction, Seniorly will correct the content and the updated date will reflect the date of the correction.
Seniorly also commits to annual review of content to ensure that out-of-date or stale content is refreshed.
If you have questions or concerns about the content we produce, or would like to partner with us on content production, please contact us at email@example.com.
