U.S. News and World Report recently published their inaugural edition of Best Senior Living Awards which expands the U.S. News rankings, ratings and data offerings.
In May 2022, Deer Crest Senior Living, an Ebenezer community, was notified by the U.S. News review and rating team, that the community had earned the highest possible ratings and had been named a Best Assisted Living for 2022-2023.
To be included in the U.S. News analysis, a senior living community had to participate in a consumer satisfaction survey of residents and their family members or appointed representatives, and had to meet certain eligibility criteria defined by U.S. News.
“We wouldn't be Deer Crest without our residents and our families, what an honor to be awarded this distinction from them,” said Deer Crest Outreach & Sales Director, Jennifer Meyer. “I am so proud to be a part of the amazing staff at Deer Crest, they really have the heart to show up every day to care for those we serve.”
Overall, more than 3,000 senior living communities surveyed their residents and families on various aspects of senior living and senior care that mattered most. The satisfaction surveys were administered on behalf of U.S. News by customer and employee analytics platform Activated Insights between March 2021 and February 2022. Components evaluated in the nearly 200,000 individual survey responses include kindness of staff, variety of activities, quality of food, quality of care, management, location, cleanliness and much more. “"It's wonderful being here because they take really good care of us,” said Deer Crest resident Carolyn Brown.
For nearly 90 years, U.S. News & World Report has used world-class data and technology to publish independent reporting, rankings, journalism and advice, to empower consumers, business leaders and policy officials to make better, more informed decisions about important issues affecting their lives and communities.
