U.S. News & World Report has recognized Heritage Woods of DeKalb as being among the best in the nation for assisted living.
The affordable assisted living community is located at 2626 N. Annie Glidden Rd. in DeKalb, Illinois and features 76 private apartments for older adults who need personal assistance and support services to maintain their independence.
The U.S. News designation of 2022-23 Best in Assisted Living 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 2021 and February 2022 and reflect the viewpoints of more than 200,000 residents and family members in thousands of senior living, assisted living, and memory care communities nationwide.
The community is managed by Gardant Management Solutions, Inc., which is based in Bourbonnais, Illinois. More than 20 Gardant-managed communities were recognized by U.S. News with Best in Assisted Living and Best in Memory Care designations.
“We are honored that Heritage Woods of DeKalb was among the communities recognized by U.S News as being among the best in the nation,” says Rod Burkett, Gardant CEO. “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.”
Heritage Woods of DeKalb is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and is designed serve adults 65 years of age and older of all incomes.
This year marked the U.S. News inaugural Best Senior Living ratings. Ratings were provided for Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Continuing Care Retirement Communities based on consumer satisfaction data collected from nearly 2,500 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.
