U.S. News & World Report released its inaugural top list of Best Senior Living for independent living, assisted living, memory care, and continuing care retirement communities across the country. The Birches at Newtown, managed by Heritage Senior Living LLC, in Bucks County earned “Best Assisted Living” by attaining the highest possible rating.
The status reflects senior living communities that satisfied U.S. News & World Report’s objective statistical assessment of performance from consumer-satisfaction surveys given between March 2021 and February 2022, reflecting the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities nationwide.
In consumer-satisfaction surveys, residents and their families evaluated these factors: community and activities, caregiving, food and dining, and management and staff.
“By far the best, most dedicated, accommodating, and loving staff. In my opinion, this is the most important aspect of any resident care facility,” a resident’s loved one expressed.
Residents and their families of The Birches noted excellence in value and the variety of life enrichment activities, caregiving, skilled and knowledgeable licensed nursing staff, quality of food and dining, responsive management and promptness of maintenance and housekeeping.
“It’s an honor to be nationally recognized as the best! The staff is grateful for the positive acknowledgements from the residents and their families,” Executive Director Kim Cahill Yannuzzi said.
The Birches consistently achieves praise from residents and their families for quality care and overall senior living experience and is also recognized by A Place for Mom as this year’s Best of Senior Living. To learn more about care services, please call 215-497-7400.
