We are thrilled to share that several CLC-Cappella communities have been honored by U.S. News & World Report with their inaugural Best Senior Living awards. The following communities were recognized:

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. These assessments reflect the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities across the country.

Best Senior Living ratings are based on U.S. News’s in-depth analysis of consumer-satisfaction data taken from the resident and family surveys organizations conducted with Activated Insights. U.S. News separately evaluated each location in independent living, assisted living and memory care. In each category, approximately 30 percent of participating locations achieved the distinction of being recognized among the Best.

“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.”

The common theme among residents is that CLC communities provide outstanding levels of care and support. Personal connections with residents, families and team members are essential as positive relationships can help reduce the social isolation and loneliness that can harm the health of older adults.

“We enjoy the intellectual stimulation of living with such an intelligent group of people…university professors, successful businesspeople, scientists, geologists, etc.,” says one resident at CLC community Holly Creek.

A delicious dining experience, a robust activities calendar, and a friendly team can improve quality of life for residents. One resident shares that “the food is excellent, and they do good activities with the clients. The staff is very friendly. I always feel welcome.”

Christian Living Communities recognizes that an incredible amount of care, focus and hard work goes into meeting the requirements of these prestigious awards. We appreciate the dedication of our team members and the strength, care and encouragement they provide to those they serve.
