Whisper Woods at Smithtown
If you ask any of our residents what stands out about Benchmark, they are likely to say the meaningful relationships that are created at our communities. This is evidenced by the letters and emails that our founder, Tom Grape, receives on a regular basis. Over twenty years ago, Tom recognized the need for setting a new standard—or benchmark, if you will. He saw the opportunity of creating an exceptional living experience for seniors built on connections, bonds, and quality care. He knew that what seniors wanted most were to feel safe, fulfilled, dignified and respected so by inspiring a “people first” philosophy, Tom created a culture of positive and rewarding human connection—not only for residents and families but for his associates as well. After all, a happy and inspired staff creates a happy and inspiring environment.
