In the latest 2022-2023 Resident and Family Satisfaction Surveys, the Towers Assisted Living Facility has been ranked among the top in the state.
Ohio’s Residential Care Satisfaction Survey asked residents and family members of assisted living facilities about their satisfaction with over 60 aspects of the facility’s services. The survey was conducted by the Scripps Gerontology Center of Miami University, under contract with the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA). In alternate years, ODA conducts interviews of families and residents. The satisfaction questionnaires were developed by impartial researchers and tested to ensure their validity.
The survey asks residents and family members about their satisfaction with the facility’s activities, administration, environment, laundry, meals and dining, direct care and other factors that affect the lives of their family members. The ratings are based on two key questions: “Overall, do you like this facility?” and “Would you recommend this facility to a family member or friend?”
In the ODA Family Satisfaction Survey, the Towers ranked in the top 2 percent of all Ohio assisted living facilities. With a score of 90.2, St. Augustine Towers placed 16th statewide and #3 in the Greater Cleveland Area, among 593 participating facilities. (Statewide average score is 76.9.)
“This is a tribute to our staff and each member’s commitment and dedication to the people we serve, regardless of their role or work schedule,” said Brigid Nolan, Director. “Quality care and service begins and ends with quality people – it’s an honor and privilege to be a part of this team.”
In the Resident Satisfaction Survey, residents gave a score of 97 to the top three questions: “Overall, do you like living here?” “Would you recommend this place to a family member or friend?” “Do you feel safe here?”
“These are the three most telling questions for us,” said Julia Liechty, Administrator of Senior Living. “We are proud to live our Mission in the city where we are accessible to all. Regular communication and satisfaction surveys tell us what’s working well and if any areas need improvement. Only a small percentage of assisted living facilities in the state achieve what St. Augustine does in service to their residents and the community.”

The Towers is located on the St. Augustine Health Campus and offers 100 affordable assisted living apartments for those 55 and over, with beautiful views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline. The St. Augustine Health Campus is conveniently located adjacent to the Gordon Square world-class arts district, a retail and dining destination and a walkable community in the heart of Cleveland’s Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, minutes from Edgewater Park and Downtown Cleveland.
For nearly 55 years, St. Augustine Health Ministries has provided health care, senior housing, and community services to thousands of Clevelanders – primarily the chronically ill and aging. As a not-for-profit, faith-based organization, St. Augustine relies on the support of its friends and partners in the community to help bring these services to those in need.
