New list is aimed at helping families find high-quality senior living when shopping for independent living, assisted living, memory care, and continuing care retirement communities.
(Alexandria, Va.) – Members of Argentum, the nation’s leading advocacy group for senior living communities, landed on the inaugural edition of the new U.S. News & World Report’s Best Senior Living list, designating the operators for providing high-quality service to their residents.
The new designations of Best Independent Living, Best Assisted Living, Best Memory Care and Best Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) seek to fill a void in the marketplace, according to the publisher.
“Families have limited information when comparing providers of independent living, assisted living, memory care or continuing care,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The Best Senior Living ratings help to fill this informational gap with comprehensive and transparent data to help older consumers and their families identify high-quality senior living communities that meet their needs and preferences.”
U.S. News and its survey provider collected data on more than 3,000 communities throughout the continental U.S. and Hawaii, representing more than 80 senior living operators. From that data set, U.S. News analysts identified 1,272 communities that excel in independent living, assisted living and/or memory care.
Argentum members appearing on the list include: Belmont Senior Living Glenview (IL), Belmont Village Senior Living Westwood (CA), Carillon Retirement Community (Lubbock, TX), Discovery Village at Sarasota Bay (Bradenton, FL), Georgetowne Place (Fort Wayne, IN), Legend of Hutchinson (KS), New Perspective Silvis (IL), Summer Breeze Senior Living (Savannah, GA), and The Wildwood Senior Living (Joplin, MO).
U.S. News said to be included in the analysis, a senior living community had to participate in a consumer satisfaction survey of residents and their family members or appointed representatives, and had to meet certain eligibility criteria defined by U.S. News. The satisfaction surveys were administered on behalf of U.S. News by customer and employee analytics platform Activated Insights between March 2021 and February 2022. Components evaluated in the nearly 200,000 individual survey responses include community and activity, food and dining, caregiving, and management and staff
To be recognized as one of the 2022-23 U.S. News Best Senior Living communities, individual locations had to earn a specific final weighted score tabulated in the independent methodology developed by U.S. News.
