MIND & MEMORY CARE

Atrium at Veronica Drive residents receive around-the-clock dementia care according to their needs and engage in group and individual experiences with specially trained, skilled caregivers who are devoted to caring for those with memory impairment.

Our Mind & Memory Care offers dementia care and experiences rooted in passion, pride and a desire to be the best. We have specially chosen our team to deliver personalized, needs-based care that supports individual abilities. We consider it our calling to help our residents feel they belong and have purpose, and to provide support that strengthens bonds between those living with dementia and their families.

environment for the unique needs of those with memory impairment.

Care Types

Mind & Memory Care Levels

  • Our Mind & Memory Plan is for residents whose care needs consist primarily of cueing and reminders. Residents are appropriate for our Mind & Memory Care Plan if they generally exhibit mild cognitive impairment and no or limited behaviors such as aggression or resistance to care.
  • Our Mind & Memory I Plan is for residents whose care needs consist primarily of a minimal level of physical assistance with activities of daily living, and minimal levels of cognitive impairment.
  • Our Mind & Memory II Plan is for residents whose care needs require a moderate amount of physical assistance with several activities of daily living, and who generally exhibit moderate cognitive impairment.
  • Our Mind & Memory III Plan is for residents whose care needs require a substantial amount of physical assistance with several activities of daily living, and who generally exhibit severe cognitive impairment and/or associated behaviors.
  • Our Mind & Memory IV Plan is for residents who have extensive needs, for example: a need for total care with one or more activities of daily living, or a substantial amount of assistance is warranted on a daily basis.
  • Our Mind & Memory V Plan is for residents who need total assistance with all aspects of care, as well as usage of a mechanical or electrical lift for transfers on an ongoing basis. They may also require extensive emotional/behavioral support.

Personalized, needs-based care to support individual abilities


Our residents come to us with various diagnoses and symptoms, and our care plans are created to what they need. We match personalized support with secure spaces that are constructed for those with dementia so our residents can have a sense of independence.

Our program goes beyond physical health—catering also to the emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual health needs that each person has with a daily calendar full of events that nurture interests and connections. Each day we offer events like off-site trips to a host of nearby attractions, special and seasonal celebrations, bowling and creative arts classes.

BENCHMARK'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Benchmark's response was swift, impactful and well­ received. Our residents' and associates' health and safety is always our top priority.

We were one of the first senior living providers to begin limiting, restricting and screening visitors and associates in our communities. With policies guided by leading experts, we are maintaining strict infection control procedures, are closely screening and testing associates and residents when needed. We have mandated the COVID-19 vaccine for all of our associates company-wide. We are thrilled to have 96% of our residents vaccinated. All while delivering frequent, transparent communication, which has continued to earn us high praise from our residents and their families.
