WALTHAM, Mass., March 4, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Benchmark Senior Living, the largest senior living provider in New England, today announced it is the new operator of the former Sunrise of Stamford, an assisted living with memory care community.

"We're excited to bring to Benchmark at Stamford the high-quality care and services that Benchmark has built its reputation on for the last 26 years." -Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO, Benchmark

Located in Stamford, Conn., the 83-apartment community is at 251 Turn of River Road, next to the Merritt Parkway and just minutes from downtown amenities. It will now be called Benchmark at Stamford.

Including Benchmark at Stamford, the company currently operates 65 senior living communities throughout the Northeast, including 20 in Connecticut and eight in Fairfield County. The company offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, and respite care. It's 66th community, Benchmark at Alexandria located in Alexandria, Virginia, will open this spring, and its 67th, Benchmark at Mount Pleasant, Mount Pleasant, NY, will open later in the year.

Benchmark has extensive experience in Fairfield County, with communities in Brookfield, Fairfield, Redding, Ridgefield, Shelton, Stamford and Trumbull. Benchmark at Stamford's sister community in Stamford, Edgehill, is a continuing care retirement community. Over the last 13 years, Edgehill has become one of the state's most highly respected and sought-after communities. Last year, it won four U.S. News & World Report excellence awards, including 2023-2024 Best Continuing Care Retirement Community, Best Independent Living, Best Assisted Living and Best Memory Care.

"We're excited to bring to Benchmark at Stamford the high-quality care and services that Benchmark has built its reputation on for the last 26 years," said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark.
