Resident & Family Member Feedback Earns Springfield Area Senior Assisted Living Community 2024 Best Memory Care Excellence Award

AGAWAM, Mass., April 24, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Atrium at Cardinal Drive, a Benchmark Mind & Memory Care community, has ranked among the best assisted living with memory care communities in Massachusetts and the entire U.S. for the second straight year. In U.S. News & World Report's third annual Best Senior Living ratings published last week, the community was selected following a comprehensive resident and family member survey. The Atrium is the only assisted living community in Agawam to have earned this prestigious award.

"Our associates are really committed to caring for our residents like they would their own family members, and we are thrilled that our dedication has been recognized by an industry leader like U.S. News." -Liz Skerry-Hastings, executive director, The Atrium at Cardinal Drive

The Atrium earned "Best" status by achieving the highest possible rating for memory care. Respondents gave the community high marks in critical areas, such as overall value, management and staff, resident enrichment, dining and food, safety, transportation, maintenance, housekeeping and location.

Forty-four Benchmark communities throughout the Northeast received a total of 62 U.S. News awards, the highest number achieved since the program's inception.

"Our communities are continually pursuing excellence, so it's exciting to see their hard work and dedication reflected in the highest numbers of Benchmark awards earned to date," said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark. "Really getting to know our residents and providing experiences that nurture connections and enhance quality of life is one of the many ways we stand apart, and we're excited to see that commitment validated, once again, by our residents and their families."

The Atrium's award-winning Mind & Memory Care program offers carefully created living environments and unique opportunities for those with Alzheimer's and dementia to find joy in each new day. Residents are supported by 24/7 care providers who have been hired for heart and trained in memory loss, communication and empathy. Neighborhoods provide the comforts of home and have unique features that help those with memory impairment prosper. Thoughtful touches, visual cues and purposeful amenities further promote familiarity and wellness.

"Our associates are really committed to caring for our residents like they would their own family members, and we are thrilled that our dedication has been recognized by an industry leader like U.S. News," said Liz Skerry-Hastings, executive director of The Atrium at Cardinal Drive. "Whether it's the personalized care we provide or engaging programs that keeps our residents connected, each and every day we strive to be the absolute best."

For more than 30 years, U.S. News has served the American public as an unbiased arbiter of quality across a variety of important choices. Whether picking a college, selecting a hospital or moving to a nursing home, consumers go to U.S. News to research and make consequential life decisions.

"Best Senior Living reflects U.S. News' commitment to helping families navigate the important – albeit time-consuming – decision of researching and choosing a senior living community through trusted, data-backed community ratings," said Sumita Singh, general manager of Health at U.S. News. "We are proud to recognize those communities that stand out as 'Best' by providing exceptional care and satisfaction, as directly expressed by residents and family members of residents who live and thrive in these communities."
