Our virtual tour was good. Their building was clean. But it seemed like most of the Alzheimer’s patients were very far gone. So my higher functioning loved one wouldn’t have had enough interaction with people like herself.
They always had something for the residents to eat. If you didn't like what they served they were willing to fix you a grilled cheese or tuna sandwich or something else. They always want you to eat. It is a really nice community, and you would be happy here. The community was good at checking on the residents, and not knowing the staff was checking on the residents.
The community's population is very elderly, but my loved ones love the staff and they do a great job taking care of our loved one. The food is great and they have activities but we would like to see a bigger variety. I would recommend this community to others
The community is often clean. The staff is great and my mother loves them all. They go out of their way to be nice to everyone and acknowledge everyone and they do a good job planning fun activities for the residents. The services at the community, like food and activities, are good. They don't have enough hours for transportation, and the buses tend to break down. They also seem to have trouble finding drivers as well.
[Name removed] Director of Community Relations hosted and introduced me to Benchmark Senior Living facility and its offerings with grace and ease. She is extremely knowledgeable and competent in presenting the options available at your facility for my mother. My visit was very fruitful in large part due to [name removed].
I was very impressed with Benchmark. it is one of my top choices
My dad and I are very happy with this community and what they are doing here. The staff is very attentive and caring to the residents. The community is also very clean and we have had no problems with anything.
This is a friendly community, and our tour of it went very well. The staff we came across was very kind, and welcoming. The community looked nice, everything was nice, and clean. Everyone was very kind to my family and myself.
The staff were all very nice and communicated well with my loved one. The community was well maintained and clean. My loved one was not very impressed by the food for some time it was good but the meals don't taste very good anymore. We were given misleading information about transportation. The transportation is only till 12 in the afternoon.
Staff is overwhelming friendly, helpful and accomodating,a real pleasure to deal with. Mom is enjoying the activities and the meals. The one shortfall is the ratio of aides to the residents needing care. Response time to call bells (pendants) is inconsistent and sometimes woefully slow. We hope to see improvement in this area.
