Friendship Village Senior Services has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a 2022-23 Best in Senior Living—with their Sunset Hills and Chesterfield community locations both earning the “Best Independent Living” distinction, and Chesterfield winning the “Best Assisted Living” category in addition.
U.S. News awards the designation of Best Senior Living only to those communities that satisfy U.S. News’s objective statistical assessment of each senior living community’s performance from consumer satisfaction surveys administered 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. Friendship Village has more than 40 years’ experience serving St. Louis-area seniors with a continuing-care model. Their recently completed expansion totaling over $200 million across both campuses provides further access to cutting-edge Independent and Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Memory Care programs, as well as the latest in amenities and care technology.
“Friendship Village is continually dedicated to building the future of Senior Living,” said Carmen Fronczak, Executive Director Friendship Village Chesterfield & Chief Revenue Officer Friendship Village Senior Services. “Our goal is to keep our residents well and independent for as long as possible in our state-of-the art facilities, using developing technology and partnerships with other leading senior care providers. Coupled with our unique Life Care program, which keeps health care costs predictable as residents age, and even an at-home care option, St. Louis-area seniors have access to the best in modern senior living with Friendship Village. It’s an honor to be named ‘Best’ in both Independent and Assisted Living categories—and a true testament to the dedication of the entire FV staff.”
