US News Best Assisted Living – What families & residents are saying about Cedar Trails Senior Living in Freeburg, Illinois


Cedar Trails has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a 2022-23 Best Assisted Living. US News selected communities based on survey results from over 3,000 residents and their families. As part of the selection process, US News also collected comments from residents and their families, which gave us an opportunity to hear from them.

One piece of feedback we received highlights how we fulfill our goal.

“Cedar Trails will allow you or your loved one to continue a productive and happy life by providing whatever level of support and care they need”

Cedar Trails knows that feeling at home is one of the most important feelings one can have and we strive to make each and every day feel that way. Here is insight from a resident that emphasizes how we create a sense of home:

“It is hard to leave your home, but if you have to go to Senior Living, Cedar Trails is the place to be!”

While many remarks reference resident experiences, one of them gives advice to residents who are deciding what their next move is and how to move forward. Check out this comment for some tips and tricks:

“I do encourage friends to consider moving here. I feel excited to have new residents move in and want to help them feel happy to live here. I observe that when individuals don’t make the decision on their own and are forced to move here by family, the adjustment is much harder for them.”

It also highlights how our residents cultivate the sense of community

“I try especially hard to be supportive of those individuals, and usually I see a change in them in a fairly short time. My husband and I chose to move here and though it is not perfect in every way, we are thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this community. We certainly will recommend it to anyone who asks us.”

We are so grateful for the award and the opportunity to hear feedback from residents and families. Cedar trails prioritizes resident’s health, peace of mind, comfort, and safety. Many of the comments reflect the high quality of life and supportive, compassionate staff, which are characteristics that make us a unique and great community that many people call home. 

We are honored and dedicate this award to you, the incredible staff, residents, families, and community that make Cedar Trails a great place to live and work.
