The Branches of Marlboro Hosts Pre-Opening Celebration
Over 50 Local Officials, Health Care Professionals and Other Individuals Gathered to See and Learn About Benchmark's First Metrowest Community
Kelly Arnao, senior executive director of The Branches communities, spoke about the community's commitment to redefining the aging experience and helping its residents discover what's meaningful and possible at every stage of their lives. "For most people, life stops after retirement. We want to help our residents continue to grow by discovering and pursuing what they are passionate about and celebrating their accomplishments along the way. Our staff is committed to elevating human connection and keeping our residents connected to the people, places and things that matter most in their lives," says Arnao.
In addition, Allison Melahouris, senior vice president of operations and strategic initiatives for Benchmark, spoke about the success of the first Branches community, The Branches of North Attleboro, and how The Branches of Marlboro came to be. "Thanks to Kelly and her team, The Branches of North Attleboro has grown into a thriving, active community that serves as an integral part of the area and is well known for its award-winning program. Before building The Branches of Marlboro, we conducted focus groups and gathered lots of feedback from our residents and families to ensure it suits the exact needs of those we serve."
The Branches of Marlboro will feature flexible floor plans and a collaborative design intended to encourage social interaction among the 104 residents who will call the community home. Those residents will also enjoy a number of amenities, including a spacious outdoor patio with farmer's porch, fire pit, beauty salon, library, fitness center and bistro featuring all-day restaurant-style dining. Personal care will be tailored to each individual and provided 24/7. Certified dementia practitioners will deliver award-winning programming for all stages of dementia and customized to each individual's unique emotional, spiritual and physical needs. EOEA certification is pending.
