Town officials, community leaders, Benchmark associates and residents from neighboring Benchmark communities gathered to celebrate the completion of Phase 1 of Sturges Ridge of Fairfield, a three-level, 85,000 square foot, assisted living and memory care community in Fairfield, Conn., our CEO Tom Grape’s hometown.

“This project is very personal to me,” says Tom. “We are bringing the first assisted living community to the town where I was raised. Sturges Ridge of Fairfield will allow local seniors to stay in a town they love as much as I do, and live next door to neighbors they’ve known for years.”

Sturges Ridge will feature underground parking, a rooftop patio and 88 total units: a mix of 68 studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments with access to assisted services, and 20 apartments uniquely designed for those seeking 24/7 access to memory and cognitive stimulation services.
