How is Mind & Memory Care Different?

All the benefits of Benchmark Assisted Living with a specialized program and
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

We treat every resident as a whole person and design and refine a care plan according to their individual needs. While some communities may provide help with all activities of daily living even if a resident doesn’t need it, we believe that empowering them to be self-sufficient in the areas they can is vital to aging well.

Our residents also spend their days participating in research-based programs and fun activities that support their overall health. Our lively environment is one in which they enjoy beach day celebrations complete with sand sculptures that bring back memories, a wide variety of fitness programs, including indoor volleyball for strength and mobility, live outdoor concerts, horticulture therapy and cooking classes.
