Benchmark Senior Living, a leading provider of senior living services in the Northeast, today announced that New Pond Village, a Benchmark continuing care retirement community in Walpole, Mass., is adding 19 assisted living apartments. The community is located five miles from Legacy Place in Dedham and less than seven miles from Patriot Place, the home of Gillette Stadium, in Foxboro.

New Pond Village will now offer a total of 36 assisted living apartments. The new units will be located on the third floor overlooking the beautifully landscaped, 19.4-acre campus. They will also feature high ceilings and large windows to bring in lots of light. Individuals can have the opportunity to secure their desired location by placing a priority deposit.

The project is being built by SEO Construction in Nashua, N.H., and was designed by Udelsman Associates of Hollis, N.H. Interior design is being done by StudioSix5 in Austin, TX.

Repeatedly named the best senior living community in the area, on one campus, New Pond Village offers independent living, assisted living, memory care and outpatient rehabilitation services in partnership with HealthPRO. The community’s associates are committed to keeping individuals connected to the people, passions and things that matter most to them at every stage of their lives. New Pond was uniquely designed for those who want the peace-of-mind of knowing the care they need is at their fingertips, no matter what the future may bring. Their Lifecare Advantage program provides a predictable monthly rate for life without worrying about rising healthcare costs.

“The demand that we’ve seen lately has been tremendous,” said Adam Manchester, executive director of New Pond Village. “Older people and their families are looking for options that provide more security and assurances that they will have the care they need when they need it. We are excited to be celebrating our 30th anniversary with the opportunity to add new friends to our community.”

Since Benchmark acquired New Pond Village in May 2017, it has undergone extensive renovations. In 2018, an $8-million renovation brought new and refreshed common areas, including an elegant formal dining room, bistro, recreation room, salon and more to the community.

New Pond Village is known for a tradition of excellence, having been one of Massachusetts’ first senior living communities.
