Our Methodology: How We Chose the Best Assisted Living in Springfield

Springfield has dozens of senior communities, so narrowing down the top contenders requires careful research and consideration of the most important factors for seniors and their families. We spent over 50 hours researching and comparing Springfield communities using the following critera.

  • Cost: The cost of assisted living in Springfield is low compared to the cost of living in many other major cities. We try to balance cost with overall value when selecting the best assisted living communities.
  • Available care: Some communities in Springfield offer only ADL support and not much else. We try to include communities that offer additional lifestyle and care options, such as medication management, independent living, and memory care.
  • Reviews: We read through hundreds of reviews to find out what real people are saying about communities throughout Springfield, so we can focus on the communities that receive the most positive feedback.
  • Amenities: Amenities are an important part of senior care since they can enrich residents’ lives. We focus our research on assisted living communities that offer multiple life-enrichment amenities.
  • Location: Most assisted living communities in Springfield are clustered around the southern and eastern edges of the city, but we try to include a mix of locations to accommodate seniors who want to live close to the city center or in the outer suburbs.
  • Staff size: We highlighted assisted living communities that offer high staff-to-resident ratios, often with a maximum of eight residents per caregiver.
