Customer Reviews

[Name removed] Director of Community Relations hosted and introduced me to Benchmark Senior Living facility and its offerings with grace and ease. She is extremely knowledgeable and competent in presenting the options available at your facility for my mother. My visit was very fruitful in large part due to [name removed].

I was very impressed with Benchmark. it is one of my top choices

We love it!

My dad and I are very happy with this community and what they are doing here. The staff is very attentive and caring to the residents. The community is also very clean and we have had no problems with anything.

Kind Community

This is a friendly community, and our tour of it went very well. The staff we came across was very kind, and welcoming. The community looked nice, everything was nice, and clean. Everyone was very kind to my family and myself.

Warm And Welcoming Staff!!

The staff were all very nice and communicated well with my loved one. The community was well maintained and clean. My loved one was not very impressed by the food for some time it was good but the meals don't taste very good anymore. We were given misleading information about transportation. The transportation is only till 12 in the afternoon.

Friendly but slow

Staff is overwhelming friendly, helpful and accomodating,a real pleasure to deal with. Mom is enjoying the activities and the meals. The one shortfall is the ratio of aides to the residents needing care. Response time to call bells (pendants) is inconsistent and sometimes woefully slow. We hope to see improvement in this area.

Review of Benchmark Senior Living at Hamden - Hamden, CT

Warm and inviting. Furniture very worn looking in the dining room and activity rooms. Clean friendly. Staff very visible and involved.

Benchmark has been great.

Benchmark has been great. She is doing really well there. They have been really good right from the start. She has not complained about the food at all. They have been very communicative about everything that is going on, very proactive about her care.

very welcoming

They were very welcoming to my uncle, and everyone has been very cordial and has engaged him in activities and everything that is going on there.

There have been some communication challenges with the nursing staff regarding his medication.

Overall though it has been a positive experience.

I'm telling you, I cannot praise the staff enough.

I'm telling you, I cannot praise the staff enough. They were so wonderful to my husband and myself. It was a little on the expensive side. I saw the other residents really getting engaged and social in the activities. The parking seemed to be somewhat limited. They were the only ones of the places we looked at ready to help. And the director of nursing was able to see through the medication he was on during the assessment. They really embraced both of us, he passed away, and even now some of them will call and check on me and see how I am doing.
