CHAMBERSBURG, Pennsylvania — May 10, 2022 – Magnolias of Chambersburg has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a 2022-23 Best Assisted Living and Best Memory Care senior community.
Magnolias of Chambersburg, operated by Pittsburgh-based IntegraCare, is one of the senior living communities recognized by U.S. News that earned “Best” status by achieving the highest possible rating for Assisted Living and Memory Care.
U.S. News awards the designation of Best Senior Living only to those communities that satisfy U.S. News’s objective statistical assessment of each senior living community’s performance from consumer satisfaction surveys administered between March 2021 and February 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities nationwide.
“What families and residents want most when they move to a senior living community is quality of care and quality of life,” said Larry Rouvelas, CEO of IntegraCare. “Even in the face of COVID-19 and staffing challenges, the leadership and team members at our communities deliver on both every single day. We are proud to have earned this recognition from U.S. News & World Report.”
“The results of this year-long survey are a testament to all the hard work that team members have put in and it is also a testament to the respect they have earned from the residents and families for the hard work they are doing,” Rouvelas said.
The inaugural U.S. News Best Senior Living ratings and profiles offer comprehensive information and exclusive analysis of consumer satisfaction data evaluating such factors as community & activity, food & dining, caregiving, and management & staff for nearly 2,500 communities in the continental U.S. and Hawaii. For more than 30 years, U.S. News has served the American public as an unbiased arbiter of quality across a variety of important choices. Whether picking a college, selecting a hospital or moving to a nursing home, consumers go to U.S. News to research and make consequential life decisions.
“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.”
