Gardant-Managed Communities Recognized for Being the Best

U.S. News & World Report has recognized 12 Gardant-managed communities as being among the best in the nation for assisted living and memory care.

The designation of 2023-24 Best in Assisted Living and Best in Memory Care was awarded only to the communities that earn the highest possible rating on consumer satisfaction surveys of residents and family member of residents. The surveys were administered between March 2022 and February 2023 and reflect the viewpoints of more than 200,000 residents and family members in nearly 4,000 of senior living, assisted living, and memory care communities nationwide.

The Gardant-managed communities that were recognized as Best in Assisted Living are:

Heritage Woods of Huntley

“We are honored that so many of the communities we manage have been recognized by U.S News as being among the best in the nation,” says Greg Echols, Co-President of Gardant. “We are committed to our mission of enriching the lives of the residents we serve by providing them with the Love, Compassion, and Dignity they deserve in addition to the personal assistance and support services they need.”

Ratings were provided for Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Continuing Care Retirement Communities based on consumer satisfaction data collected from nearly 4,000 communities nationwide. For assisted living and memory care, factors that were evaluated by U.S. News included value and the quality of care, activities, management, staff, food, maintenance, and housekeeping. Only 43% of the nearly 4,000 communities that U.S. News evaluated earned a “Best” rating for even one type of care.

“U.S. News provides in-depth information on multiple community types to help potential residents and their families find, in consultation with their doctors as needed, the best place to help meet their needs,” said Zach Adams, senior health data engineer 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.”
