EXTON, Pa. – Exton Senior Living has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Memory Care community. This is the second straight year the community received recognition by the world renowned publication.
The 2023-2024 ratings offer a look at the best senior living communities across the United States to assist older adults and their loved ones when researching and choosing the right senior living community for them.
U. S. News surveyed residents and family members — for their satisfaction with lifestyle, care, community management and staff, value and other services and amenities provided by the community. U.S. News & World Report evaluated nearly 4,000 communities.
“Our award-winning service recognized by U.S. News is the result of the dedication of a tenured team that brings a significant amount of experience to our community as well as the great new team members we’ve added,” said Casey Counseller, Executive Operations Officer at Exton Senior Living. “Our memory care community, LifeStories, is warm and welcoming. We envelop those residents with dementia in surroundings of dignity, respect and care as if they were our own parent or loved one.”
Only 30% of the 4,000 communities that U.S. News evaluated earned a “Best” rating in 2023-2024. Last year, U.S. News named Exton Senior Living a Best Assisted Living community.
“While a beautiful building is nice, the quality of life inside the building is much more important,” said IntegraCare CEO Larry Rouvelas. “Our community leaders and their teams have done an extraordinary job to create a great place to live. That’s not just me saying it: The U.S. News recognition is based on survey results from residents and family members, which makes it even more gratifying.”
U.S. News awards the designation of Best Senior Living only to those communities that satisfy U.S. News’ statistical assessment of performance on consumer satisfaction surveys administered between April 2022 and November 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities nationwide.
“For IntegraCare communities once again to receive such significant recognition from U.S. News & World Report is both inspiring and a source of motivation for us to continue to make the lives of our residents and their families better,” Rouvelas said.
U.S. News & World Report, considered the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, introduced its Best Senior Living designations in 2022.
“For the second consecutive year, U.S. News is providing in-depth information to help potential residents and their loved ones find the best place to help meet their needs,” said Sumita Singh, senior vice president and general manager of Healthcare 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.”
