Long-Time Associate Assumes Leadership of Bedford Falls Assisted Living Community
Ashley Tino of Bedford Named New Executive Director
Ashley Tino has helped Manchester area seniors and their families address the challenges of aging for nearly 10 years at Bedford Falls, a Benchmark assisted living and Mind & Memory Care community. Now, the New Boston resident with 20 years of experience caring for local seniors has assumed the role of executive director after serving as a licensed nursing assistant (LNA) and director of community relations for the senior assisted living community.
“I knew from day one that this is where I wanted to be,” said Tino. “I’m proud to work alongside long-time associates like myself who are wholly committed to keeping our residents connected to who and what matters most in their lives. I’m looking forward to ushering in the next decade alongside our extended family of residents and their families.”
Since it opened in 2012, Bedford Falls has operated true to its namesake, the fictional community depicted in the classic film, It’s a Wonderful Life. Its success in providing the best care and experiences recently earned the assisted living with memory care community U.S. News & World Report’s Best Assisted Living and Best Memory Care designations. They were one of only seven communities in all of New Hampshire to receive a designation and the only community in Hillsborough County.
The community was also the recent recipient of a prestigious 2022 American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living Bronze Quality Award and has been named the Union Leader Reader’s Choice Award Winner for Assisted Living for several years running.
Bedford Falls offers both independent assisted living and memory care assisted living for those who would benefit from a safer, engaging environment, chef-prepared meals, supportive living services, transportation and assistance with daily activities, such as getting dressed and medication management. Residents enjoy connecting over programs and amenities offered in many common spaces, including a bistro and pub, fitness center, demonstration kitchen, hair salon and spa, library, private dining room and outdoor courtyards with walking paths.
