Baptist Retirement Community Named Best Continuing Care Retirement Community by U.S. News

The San Angelo faith-based senior living community also earned awards for Best Independent Living and Best Memory Care as part of the 2023-3024 Best Senior Living ratings.

Baptist Retirement Community received three awards from U.S. News & World Report: Best Continuing Care Retirement Community, Best Independent Living, and Best Memory Care. The three awards were determined by the consumer news outlet’s 2023-2024 Best Senior Living ratings, which assist seniors and their families with researching and selecting the best senior living community.

“We are honored to be one of Texas’ best senior living communities and among the best in the country,” said Aaron Hargett, executive director at Baptist Retirement Community. “Our quality of service is reflective of the passion each of us have for serving seniors and ‘Inspiring Happiness’ in their lives.”

According to U.S. News, its Best Senior Living ratings evaluate nearly 4,000 communities in the U.S. in one or more of the following categories: independent living, assisted living, memory care and continuing care retirement.

“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.”

To be recognized as one of the 2023-2024 U.S. News Best Senior Living communities, individual locations had to earn a specific final weighted score tabulated in the independent methodology developed by the U.S. News health data analytics team.
