“It’s been quite the banner year for us,” stated Bob Leonard, one of the co-owners of The Gatesworth communities. “We were placed on the U.S. News & World Report list of 2022-2023 Best Senior Living for The Gatesworth and Best Memory Care for Parc Provence.”

“The 2022 Ladue News Platinum List poll also named The Gatesworth as the winner for Independent Living, McKnight Extended for Skilled Nursing and Parc Provence for Memory Care,” Leonard adds. “The recent awards from the Post-Dispatch drive home our passion for providing senior living and care to the St. Louis area.”

The owners’ on-site presence and well-rounded expertise in design, construction, finance, sales and marketing and operations have made The Gatesworth communities renowned within the senior housing industry, and it has inspired the development of many senior living communities across the U.S. and worldwide. These awards help recognize the hard work and dedication of the owners and staff to their Residents.

“We’ve earned these accolades by devoting ourselves to the residents’ well-being—and we don’t rest on our laurels,” says Leonard. “We constantly focus on making things better. Our services and amenities are unmatched.”

As a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), The Gatesworth Communities provide the full spectrum of independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing for the changing needs of our Residents.

The Gatesworth, established in 1988, revolutionized what it meant to be a senior living community, providing exceptional services and an elegant residential lifestyle. From quality amenities to top-of-the-line staff, it’s no wonder The Gatesworth continues to be named a top senior living community, locally and nationally.

Mcknight Place is committed to being a premier assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing community by providing the highest quality programs, services and healthcare to residents every day.

Parc Provence, a licensed skilled nursing community specializing in memory care, offers residents and their families exceptional care for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease through dedicated, person-centered support.

The Gatesworth founders created an environment that would adhere to a simple philosophy: The answer is yes. What is the question?  is the standard for what has made The Gatesworth, McKnight Place and Parc Provence St. Louis’ premier senior communities they are today.
