For a second straight year, Colonial Courtyard at Bedford has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Assisted Living community.
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 team strives hard each and everyday to focus on resident centered care,” said Colonial Courtyard executive operations director Brandy Thornton. “We pride ourselves on promoting healthy living for our residents, through nutritious meals to daily activities and so much more. Our Senior Living and Memory Care neighborhood allows a safe place and centered attention to each of our residents. Providing families peace of mind that their loved one is safe and cared for.
“It’s great to see that dedication noticed through this recognition by U.S. News. We appreciate the Best Assisted Living honor and it motivates us to do even better in the future.”
Only 30% of the 4,000 communities that U.S. News evaluated earned a “Best” rating in 2023-24. Colonial Courtyard at Bedford also earned Best Assisted Living status in 2022-2023.
“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.”
