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


With many different stages and types of memory impairment, we believe those differences need to be considered when it comes to their care. A personalized care plan created for each resident helps us stay at the forefront of our residents’ symptoms and makes it possible for them to remain self-sufficient in the areas they can.

We also cater to all aspects of their wellness with tailored one-on-one and group offerings that tap into their emotions, spirituality, socialization and intellectual needs. Programs like live piano performances, Benchmark Strong classes for strength and balance, themed parties that take our residents back to a different time, art therapy and challenges that address cognitive skills allows our residents to connect, have fun and feel purpose.

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.
