MISSION, Kansas [June 14, 2022] – Active Independent Living community The Welstone At Mission Crossing earned a top honor in the first-ever Best Senior Living rankings by U.S. News & World Report, winning in the Best Independent Living category. The 2022-2023 Best Senior Living guide is a debut offering from U.S. News & World Report, itself the foremost global authority in health ratings and consumer advice, attracting more than 50 million visitors per month.
The initiative began last fall, and used objective, independent statistical assessment of consumer satisfaction survey data gathered from nearly 2,500 Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care communities throughout the United States. The rating criteria included analysis of consumer satisfaction across categories like community and activities, food and dining, caregiving, and management and staff.
“I am incredibly proud of our community and team members for exhibiting excellence on a national stage,” said Jeff Brown, Executive Director of The Welstone at Mission Crossing. “Being named a Best Senior Living community truly reflects our team’s passion for our seniors, and the motivation to provide a product that actively supports our residents’ meaningful and fulfilled lives in our Independent Living community.“
“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 & World Report. “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 Welstone At Mission Crossing is operated by Florida-based Discovery Senior Living, which had 34 communities across the country place atop the inaugural Best Senior Living rankings.
