WALTHAM, Mass: Benchmark Senior Living, a leading provider of senior housing in the Northeast, is pleased to announce the addition of The Arbors of Bedford in Bedford, N.H., to its growing portfolio of communities.
With the acquisition, Benchmark now operates nine standalone memory care communities in four states. The Arbors becomes Benchmark's fifth location in New Hampshire and its 55th community in the region.

Benchmark acquired an interest in the community from U.S. Healthcare Venture LLC, with whom it will continue to partner in owning The Arbors of Bedford, located at 70 Hawthorne Drive.

"We are pleased to welcome The Arbors of Bedford's residents, families and associates into Benchmark," says Tom Grape, Chairman and CEO. "We've had the privilege of serving New Hampshire for nearly 20 years at our four other communities, and we're especially gratified to add this all-memory-care community to complement the assisted living and memory care services of nearby Bedford Falls, which is typically at full capacity."

The Arbors of Bedford, currently capable of serving 87 residents in 54 apartments, specializes in caring for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other memory impairments.

"Families in New Hampshire and across the Northeast count on our compassionate care of and meaningful connections with their loved ones," says Allison Melahouris, Senior Vice President of Quality Resident Services. "We are eager to bring Benchmark's 20 years of memory care expertise and our values-based culture to The Arbors of Bedford."

Along with nearby Bedford Falls, Benchmark offers an array of senior living options in New Hampshire - independent living, assisted living, memory care and short-term stays - at The Birches at Concord, Greystone Farm at Salem and Benchmark Senior Living at Nashua Crossings.
