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


Our nurse leaders create and refine individualized care plans and coordinate supportive services so our residents can age well. With reverence for dignity and sense of self, we focus on providing just the right amount of support our residents need.

Equally important is our dedicated programming team who gets to know our residents and designs programs according to their needs. Every hour, our residents participate in any number of individual and group programs to address their overall health. Relaxing live music amongst the trees, fitness classes that address strength and balance and events that honor special times in their lives are some of the many programs we make possible.

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.
