Nick Barash Honored for Values-Driven Leadership That Fosters Meaningful Connections at Assisted Living Communities

RYE, N.H., April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Benchmark, the largest senior living provider in New England, today announced that Nick Barash of Andover, Mass., executive director of Benchmark at Rye, a Mind & Memory Care community, has received the Benchmark 2023 President's Award, which is the Waltham-based company's highest honor for associates in a senior leadership role.

"The compassion and care our associates exhibit daily is truly inspiring. I couldn't be more proud of this year's winners and all they've accomplished." -Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO, Benchmark Senior Living

At the company's 21st Annual Awards Gala held on March 7, 2024, Barash was selected for exhibiting outstanding operational leadership at his previous community, Benchmark Senior Living at Haverhill Crossings and at his present community, Benchmark at Rye, a memory care assisted living community.

Barash was hailed for frequently going above and beyond for residents, their families and associates, which has resulted in increased satisfaction across the community. By taking the time to truly listen to everyone so he can understand their needs and develop a plan toward meeting them, he's made a positive and lasting impact on both communities.

"The compassion and care our associates exhibit daily is truly inspiring," said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark. "Our annual awards gala is a time when we all can come together to celebrate the good work that the associates at our 65 communities do every day to transform lives through human connection. I couldn't be more proud of this year's winners and all they've accomplished."

From carefully created living environments to providing unique opportunities for residents to find joy in each new day, Benchmark at Rye's assisted living with memory care community is committed to meeting each resident's needs.

The staff is focused on cultivating a sense of belonging and purpose and providing varying levels of support that strengthen bonds between those living with dementia, their families and each other.

The community's many neighborhoods offer the comforts of home and have unique features that benefit those with memory impairment. Thoughtful touches, visual cues and purposeful amenities, such as on-site physical therapy, a beauty salon, light-filled sunrooms and raised garden beds, provide familiarity and promote wellness.

In addition to offering long-term residency, Benchmark at Rye is also a short-term respite care provider for individuals suffering from memory issues, thus giving their caregivers a temporary break from care as well as a chance to trial community living for loved ones.
