Healthier Living — in Mind, Body and Spirit

At Benchmark, we believe that independent living is more than just having a lovely apartment, fine amenities and scheduled local transportation available. We focus on health and wellness strategies that help residents stay independent longer. Our outlook goes beyond having well-appointed communities or nutritious dining choices. We’re innovative, with a holistic approach. For instance, we offer our award-winning Live Now, Live Well program. Live Now, Live Well addresses the intellectual, physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of each individual.

Healthier Living at Benchmark Senior Living

Benchmark is always looking for engaging new ways to keep residents independent longer. For example, the public often joins us at our Wellness Events and is welcome to programs we create with the Arthritis Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and hundreds of civic, educational, arts and recreational partners in every Benchmark community.
