Thanks and Happy Holidays
Mom is a resident of Benton House since the end of May. After having spent two weeks visiting Benton House on a Respite Visit, Mom decided that she wanted to become part of the Benton House family.
And family is what the Benton House has become to all of us. The Executive Director, Brandy is a caring and tireless leader and is never too busy to listen and offer comforting advice. She runs an excellent facility and has surrounded herself with an exceptional staff.
It is hard to single out individuals as Mom only has good things to say about everyone– the aides, med techs, dining, activities coordinators, and laundry, cleaning and nursing staff. To the individuals that I have come to know personally and you know who you are…..my sincere thanks.
Special thanks to Sharon who is way more than the Administrative Assistant – she always has time to answer questions, both in person and over the phone and takes the time, no matter how busy she is, to listen and to Jackie, who is caring and compassionate and just exceptional.
By no means do I want to miss expressing gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all of the Benton House staff especially to those who touch not only Mom on a daily basis but to those who touch mine too.
Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday Season from Ms. Maria and family!
KENIA IS AN OUTSTANDING MEMORY CARETAKER
As a local dental office who strives for excellent patient care, we couldn’t help but observe the careful and exceptional care that was given by Kenia to one of our memory care patients. Her refreshing and comforting conversation is so worthy to be recognized. Kenia… THANK YOU for being the caregiver that you are to this community. We are thrilled to have witnessed your exceptional care. FIVE STARS *****
Benton House is Amazing!
I can’t say enough about the Benton House and their staff. My parents moved there in the fall of 2016 as my mom needed 24 hour care due to her Alzheimers Disease. The memory care staff provide great day-to-day care for my mom (and also my dad until his death in 2018). I love coming to Benton House when they have their themed dinners. They go all out to making my mom and the rest of the members of memory care unit enjoy those evenings, decorating and providing music and great food. They took the time to get to know mom when she first moved there. her likes and dislikes and they make sure every one of the memory care unit staff know that. I come there quite a bit and they are always friendly, all smiles. I couldn’t ask for anything more in Benton House.
Thankful…So Thankful to Benton House!
We so appreciate the wonderful care being given to Mary and the way each of her days is spent by an excellent staff. Activities are ever changing and carefully explained. Being out of state and not being able to visit as often as I would like, I had considered moving Mary closer to me. But given the helpful communications and updates, I would not consider moving Mary from Benton House. We treasure each one of the caring staff. Thank you Benton House.
Best Regards from Roxanne and Family.
The Right Decision
Throughout life, one must make difficult decisions. None was more difficult for me than placing my husband of almost 44 years in a memory care facility. I am very pleased with the expert care that he receives, thanks to the staff at Benton House. I made the right decision.
Listening to the Family
Thank you, Brandy, Sharonah, Shakenia, Amber, and ALL the staff for being there for my Dad—and me. Benton House strives to be family oriented. Whenever there might be an issue, I feel very comfortable approaching key staff to work out a situation so that I’m satisfied that it will work for my Dad. This has been happening since my Dad arrived at Benton House in 2015. At that time, he was functioning between the level of Assisted Living and Memory Care. I insisted he sleep in the Memory Care Unit, but I wanted him to have the opportunity to participate in many kinds of activities in Assisted Living. Brandy was most open to this idea and told me not to worry because staff would watch him. This approach worked successfully for 2 ½ years. Now, my Dad, at 103 years—Jan, 2019, is experiencing dementia and is going through a decline. Benton staff continue to support my Dad—and me. His behaviors are unfamiliar to me. Staff are supportive, explaining why they are doing things a certain way. I continue to ask many questions and make certain that things are being done so that it best meets my Dad’s needs. I very much appreciate staff keeping their doors open to me–and, stopping what they are doing to listen to my concerns!
There Since The Beginning
My Mother has been a resident of Benton House since it opened. She is content, happy and likes where she lives.
The Director, Brandy, Abby, Sharon, Sharonah, Jennifer and the women & men who come in every day & work so hard & tirelessly to see that all residents are cared for & whose needs are met daily.
The residents are delightful and each one has a story. Their life stories & experiences are filled with love of family, hope & life lessons they have experienced. All one has to do is listen.
The staff does such a good job of treating each resident with the respect & dignity they so rightly deserve.
Thank you one & all for your caring.

Thank You Staff
My wife and I had adjusted to the “new normal” with her MCI until a fall in March when every thing stopped working. After months of PT & OT, they gave up, but the staff at Benton House has not. They are loving her back to HOPE, one day at a time. It’s hard to live without hope. Thank you staff, I love what you do for the one I have loved for 55 years.
Staff Is Supportive And Responsive
We just moved our 97 year old Mom into Benton House, Bluffton S.C. and admittedly it took me a bit to figure things out and how things work from long distance here in New Mexico. The good news is we are in week 3 and all is well. Staff is supportive and responsive, activities are taking place as planned, food is reported by Mom as very good, and services like her hair and manicure schedules are working well and appreciated. She has made some friends and is probably more active now than she has been in a long time with the staff making sure she keeps moving, gets her med’ s, and meals on time. I noticed there are very few comments on this site and just had to chime in a bit of support for Collin ( The Director) & Sheika (the Coordinator for Moms “neighborhood”) and all the staff for their attentive service and comforting communication on my multiple requests and inquiries. Keep up the good work!
The Staff Are Caring And Respectful
We moved our mother into Benton House (Memory Care Unit) about 3 weeks ago and are very happy with the care she is receiving. The staff are caring and respectful of the residents and keep the lines of communication open with the families. My mother is always kept well groomed and comfortable. There are activities specific for the Memory Care unit and residents are encouraged to participate. My mother, who typically does not join these groups, has been participating actively! The building itself is clean and nicely furnished, with lots of windows so it is bright and cheerful. My mother keeps commenting on how lovely it is -there is also a screened in porch and patio for this unit so residents may go outside safely. She comments as well on the food and how good it is! We feel very fortunate to have found such a great facility!
