Benchmark Senior Living will develop its first Westchester County, NY community in Mount Pleasant, NY, with plans to open in 2024

Benchmark Senior Living to Develop Its First Westchester County Project 

Waltham, MA-based Benchmark Senior Living, the largest senior housing provider in New England, will be adding its third assisted living community in New York in the spring of 2024 with the construction of Benchmark at Mount Pleasant in Westchester County. It will be Benchmark’s first property in Westchester County, joining two others on Long Island. 

The company is partnering with Shelbourne Healthcare Development Group LLC, a development and investment firm in Wayne, PA. Benchmark will serve as the sole operator of the assisted living and Mind & Memory Care community, which will be the first of its kind in Mount Pleasant. 

“For 25 years, Benchmark has fulfilled a need for seniors and their families across the Northeast,” said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to help seniors in Westchester County age well near loved ones.”
