Russellville Park Named Best Independent Living and Best Memory Care by U.S. News & World Report

Celebrating Best Senior Living from U.S. News and World Report

Alissa Sauer

For decades, U.S. News and World Report rankings have been a trusted source for consumers in identifying the best hospitals, mutual funds, cars, colleges, nursing homes, and more. For the third consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report has identified the best independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities.

We are proud to have been named among their Best Senior Living communities for the second time – this year as Best Independent Living and Best Memory Care. Take a closer look at the methodology of the rankings and see how we stacked up!

U.S. News and World Report Best Senior Living Awards

Finding high-quality senior living is becoming increasingly important as today’s older adults continue to redefine retirement. Today’s senior living communities are vibrant places where seniors are empowered and free to design their days in meaningful and purpose-driven ways. As homeownership becomes increasingly burdensome, more seniors and their families are seeking trusted senior living communities that can provide care that protects their privacy and promotes dignity.

“U.S. News provides in-depth information on multiple community types to help potential residents and their families find, in consultation with their doctors as needed, the best place to help meet their needs,” said Zach Adams, senior health data engineer at U.S. News. “Communities that are highly rated excel in making residents feel safe, well cared for, and highly satisfied by the services provided.”

In recognition of the evolution of retirement and senior living and to identify those communities excelling in meeting the needs of today’s older adults, U.S. News and World Report launched their inaugural senior living ratings two years ago. For this year’s awards, consumer satisfaction surveys were given between March 2023 and February 2024, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 residents in approximately 4,000 senior living communities nationwide. Data points included in the survey included a range of important senior living topics, including,

  • The kindness of the staff
  • Variety of activities
  • Quality of food
  • Overall dining experience
  • Local transportation services
  • Quality of on-site caregiving

Russellville Park Exceeds Expectations

The resident survey revealed that Russellville Park is exceeding expectations in nearly all areas, specifically in the following areas:

  • 93% of respondents said they feel safe in the community
  • 89% of respondents said the health & wellness team listens to and treats them with respect
  • 83% of respondents said they would recommend the community to friends and family

Respondents who took the survey said,

“Russellville Park is a friendly, helpful, and safe place. Activities to please all tastes are offered, and a lot of pleasant hoopla is made of all the major holidays of American life. It is a good place to live with dignity and taste in the later years of life.”

“I shopped many places and Russellville is the best in Portland. It’s affordable for all we get. Food is great. Staff is so nice and professional. Maintenance is fast. It’s safe. Always something going on. What more could we want?”

“Russellville Park truly feels like our home.. not just an apartment that we’re occupying. Having the ability to create an environment reflective in a concentrated form of our past and present lives is treasured. We’ve enjoyed painting a few walls to make our home uniquely ours. We also have been enriched by meeting so many interesting and compatible individuals that we would have never have had the pleasure of knowing living in our old home.”

“I am grateful for the very enjoyable and caring ‘neighborhood atmosphere’ that I think most every new resident of Russellville Park will quickly come to appreciate and participate in. Very often there are very challenging and difficult circumstances that cause an individual or couple to come to a retirement community, and to find oneself in this kind of environment will almost always be tremendously helpful.”
