Cedar Community has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a 2023-2024 Best independent living. The ratings offer a look at the best senior living communities across the United States–assisting older adults and their loved ones when researching and choosing the right senior living community for them. Only 43 percent of the communities that U.S. News evaluated earned a “Best” rating.

For 2023-2024 Best Senior Living, U.S. News rated each community on several criteria, including resident and family members’ satisfaction with safety, care, community management and staff, value, and other services and amenities provided by the community.

“Cedar Community is the region’s largest faith-based, nonprofit senior living community–providing servant leadership for 70 years. We are proud to be recognized as a leader among our peer organizations, offering retirement living at its finest with team members who provide exemplary service each and every day,”  says Sarah Malchow, chief administrative officer.

U.S. News evaluated nearly 4,000 communities in one or more of the following categories: independent living, assisted living, memory care, and continuing care retirement. U.S. News awards the designation of Best Senior Living only to those communities that satisfy U.S. News’ statistical assessment of performance on consumer satisfaction surveys administered between April 2022 and November 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities nationwide.

“For the second consecutive year, U.S. News is providing in-depth information to help potential residents and their loved ones find the best place to help meet their needs,” said Sumita Singh, senior vice president and general manager of Healthcare 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.”
