New Pond Village Has Joined Our Benchmark Family

New Pond Village Has Joined Our Benchmark Family

Our CEO and founder, Tom Grape, has had his eye on New Pond Village for years. At last, this beautiful community and its wonderful associates are part of the Benchmark family.

Please join in welcoming New Pond Village in Walpole, Mass., and its 120 associates into the Benchmark family. This beautiful new addition becomes our 54th community.

“We are delighted to embrace the New Pond Village community of residents and families,” says Tom Grape, our Chairman and CEO, “and we are especially happy to welcome the experienced 120-member team of leaders and associates – many of whom have been at New Pond Village for years – into the Benchmark family.”

Residents at New Pond Village can choose from among 167 independent living apartments. Other amenities include a dining plan with chef-prepared meals, 24-hour concierge service and scheduled transportation with drivers on duty daily. 

New Pond Village also offers 32 supportive care apartments and services designed for individuals looking for assistance with some of the basic activities of daily living. 

New Pond Village is the second addition to the Benchmark lineup during our 20th anniversary year: Benchmark Senior Living at Clapboardtree opened its doors in Norwood, Mass., in January. 

More New Communities on the Benchmark Horizon
On May 22, we’ll open the welcome center for Whisper Woods at Smithtown, our first community in the state of New York. It’s slated to open with 101 apartments for assisted living and memory care in 2018.  

This fall, we’ll open the welcome center for Sturges Ridge at Fairfield in Tom Grape’s hometown, Fairfield, Conn. It will feature an underground garage – a Benchmark first – and a roof patio on the third floor adjacent to the family kitchen. It also will open in 2018.
