Leisure Care Communities Wins US News & World Report Best of Senior Living!Finding high-quality senior living is becoming increasingly important as a new generation of seniors redefines retirement. Today’s senior living communities are vibrant places where seniors are empowered and free to design their day as they choose. And, as homeownership becomes more burdensome, more seniors and their families are seeking trusted senior living communities that can provide care that protects privacy and promotes dignity. In recognition of the evolution of retirement and senior living, U.S. News and World Report launched their inaugural senior living ratings. Consumer satisfaction surveys were given between March 2021 and February 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 residents in approximately 3,000 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

“Until now, families have had 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 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.”

The Best Senior Living Communities Exceed Expectations

Leisure Care communities beat the industry average in every one of the designated categories including food & beverage, health and wellness, housekeeping, maintenance, programs & activities, transportation, staff, and care. And, an overwhelming 81% of our residents said that their community feels like home, compared to 74% across all senior living communities surveyed.
