Over 3,000 independent, assisted and memory care communities were surveyed for U.S. News 2022 rankings for the best senior living facilities. Ratings were based on the kindness of staff; variety of activities; quality of the food and dining experience; whether local transportation is provided to doctor’s appointments, grocery stores or other daily needs; the quality of on-site caregiving and more.
Communities that had survey participation among residents and their families were included in the U.S. News evaluation. Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care were evaluated separately. Communities that were rated highly in each of these senior living types were named Best Senior Living communities.
