Benchmark (, a leading provider of senior living services in the Northeast, today announced that its Village at East Farms assisted living and memory care community in Waterbury, Conn., has earned the honor of Best Assisted Living Community in the Greater Waterbury area as chosen by readers of The Waterbury Observer newspaper.

“This award is especially significant to us because it comes directly from the families and residents in the community we are committed to serving,” says Lee Ann Tyburski, Executive Director of The Village at East Farms. “Our goal is to ‘Be the Benchmark’ and exceed expectations, and we do that with a focus on meeting people where they are and connecting them to what’s meaningful and possible at every stage of life. That’s the Benchmark experience, and that’s what we believe our neighbors in Waterbury and surrounding areas are acknowledging.”

Since 2009, The Village at East Farms has served thousands of residents and families in the greater Waterbury area and today “is transforming the aging experience by moving beyond the categories of assisted living and memory care to offer concierge living and a unique Mind & Memory approach,” Tyburski says. “Our entire community of associates gets to know each resident and what matters to them, so we’re ready to help when needed and connect them to the things giving their lives joy, wellness, meaning and purpose.”

The Village at East Farms is one of 17 Benchmark assisted living and memory care communities in Connecticut. The company’s 18th community, Sturges Ridge of Fairfield in Fairfield, Conn., is slated to open this fall. In March, the company was chosen by the Hartford Business Journal as one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Connecticut.
