Skilled Nursing

Skilled nursing is available at select Benchmark communities with a healthcare provider recommendation following an accident, surgery or with significant health care needs.

Although many of our Assisted Living and Mind & Memory care communities offer skilled nursing services on-site by external care providers, Benchmark’s licensed skilled nursing communities are dedicated to helping seniors recover or receive compassionate long-term care.

      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.
