Every year the Benchmark Customer Engagement team designs a yearlong program for our communities. In 2016, residents explored the history and music of the most popular Broadway musicals. And in 2017, residents “traveled” cross-country exploring states with the “Benchmark Road Trip” program.

The Benchmark Honors program also links to “Helping Hands,” a monthly program for giving back to local communities. Under Benchmark Honors, Helping Hands focuses on projects honoring residents, like these:

March: Honoring our doctors and medical professionals by baking cookies or making care packages to deliver to a local hospital for nurses and doctors.

April: Honoring our artists and musicians by raising funds for a local charity through hosting a resident art show and knitting scarves or blankets to donate to a local shelter.

August: Honoring our teachers and educators by adopting a student or local school and making back-to-school backpacks and donating funds.

In April, our communities will honor their artists and musicians as part of the Benchmark Honors program.

“Providing our residents with a sense of purpose is the most important part of our programming,” says Corporate Director of Resident Services Krystee Knapic. “Everyone wants a purpose in life, and the highlight of this year’s theme is celebrating our residents’ importance and purpose.”

Like all our resident programs, the Benchmark Honors program addresses the six dimensions of wellness.
