I visited this facility

We visited Benchmark at Split Rock, and it was excellent. We liked the level of care and the level of independence. We thought the rooms were excellent. One of the features that we appreciated was the locking medical supply safe where the nurse could come in and open it. The facilities were clean. There were no odors. The person who assisted us -- Mariane -- was excellent. We liked her very much. We thought that our tour was not too long. It was light. The rooms were big, and we thought the food was very good. Overall, we had a very positive feel of putting my dad there. They offered a very wide range of activities.

Benchmark at Split Rock was very nice. I liked the setup in the lobby. I also liked the hallways. They did not look like a hotel. I was more comfortable going through them. The rooms were very nice. The staff that showed us around was very helpful. She showed us everything in the facility, and she answered all of our questions. We were very happy. This was our second choice. I think they were one of the best. I really liked the facility. I would highly recommend it.

Benchmark Senior Living was too expensive, but it was a nice facility. The rooms were very nice. The staff was pleasant. They have a bus that took them shopping, it’s very clean, and it was a brand new facility.

When we visited Split Rock (Benchmark Senior Living at Split Rock), it was being built. It wasn't ready. It was a new facility. The staff was informative though. The rooms looked nice, but they have just opened the place up. They didn't have the experience having people in there yet. I like the place. I thought it was going to be very good. It was also very clean.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My dad has been in Benchmark at Split Rock for a couple of months now. The rooms are new. They are only six months old. Everything is beautiful and bright. They have activities all day long. They have exercise every day. They have movies at night. There is a walking path you can go on. They have classes,and they have games. There is a lot to do. The staff is very friendly, and they take care of my dad as if he is family. I think they are great. We love it.

My dad is very hesitant in wanting to move into an assisted living facility, but once he walks in and feels the mood of the place, he is just so happy there, and that is the best decision he made. It is not dreary at all. The people that work there are really friendly. They make you feel at home and very welcome. The food is very good. He loves the food. It is worth looking into. It changed my dad's life for the better.

Provider Response

I visited this facility

Mom will be moving to Benchmark at Split Rock. We chose this for her because it's close to my place. It seemed like a good facility, and the people are happy. It's a brand new building, and everything seems very high end. They have lot of activities, and I think my mom will be very happy there. Their food was also pretty good.
