Carillon US & World Report Winner

Carillon Senior Living Earns Highest Rating From U.S. News & World Report

Honored as a 2022 Best Senior Living Community

U.S. News & World Report recently named Carillon Senior Living as a 2022 Best Senior Living Community. Carillon achieved the highest possible rating for all levels of care—independent living, assisted living and memory care—and is one of only seven communities nationwide to earn the distinction of Best Continuing Care Retirement Community!

What makes a senior living community like Carillon one of the best in the country? Each year, U.S. News & World Report evaluates nearly 2,500 communities in the continental U.S. and Hawaii on several factors, including the variety and types of activities offered, the quality of the food and dining experience, the quality of caregiving and the kindness of staff. Only communities that meet the organization’s strict performance criteria, as reflected in consumer satisfaction surveys, earn the annual accolade, and you bet that Carillon checked all boxes for each care category.


“We are so honored to receive all four of the “Best” ratings for senior living from U.S. News. I am so proud of the Carillon team and the exceptional service our team members provide on a daily basis,” said Pamela Roddy, Carillon’s executive director, who earned the Excellence In Advocacy Award last year. “Carillon is truly the best place to live and the best place to work.”

Carillon’s thriving community of residents and staff take tremendous pride in the high-profile honors. In fact, this is the second one Carillon earned this year. Carillon’s Senior Living health center, Carillon House, received the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ highest rating—5 stars, recognizing it as one of the top 10% health care providers in Texas.

“The assisted living staff is very dedicated to providing the best care possible for our residents each and every day,” said Sam West, director of assisted living at Carillon. “All of the staff is very proud of the wonderful recognition we received from U.S. News and World Report.”

Located next door to Texas Tech University, Carillon is the only LifeCare senior living community of its kind in West Texas. A one-time entrance fee and predictable monthly fee cover virtually everything at the community, including a vibrant lifestyle, services, and amenities and access to unlimited care for life, when the need arises. The attentive staff takes care of maintenance, housekeeping and other tasks while residents enjoy the community’s many programs and amenities. They can dine in any of the three restaurants, create in the art studio and woodworking shop, take exercise classes, play billiards, volunteer and join neighbors for outings to cultural events, Texas Tech games and more.

LifeCare is a particularly valuable option when a different level of care becomes required. The predictable monthly fee ensures that there are no surprises, and you can seamlessly transition between independent living, assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation or skilled nursing care as needed while staying in the same community and familiar surroundings.
