Benton House of Aiken is located in one of the city's residential neighborhoods. It's a senior living community that offers its residents a balanced blend of independent living and daily living support, courtesy of a 24-hour awake staff who believe in providing an atmosphere of comfort. Licensed practitioners assist residents with everyday tasks such as getting dressed alongside routine or required medical care, including medication and healthcare management. Benton House's Beacon Neighborhood offers residents the chance to build new family-like relationships with each other while helping them maintain external family ties with their relatives and loved ones. It balances this by also providing access to privacy at the residents' leisure. This need can be accommodated in quiet spaces like the garden and patio. For those who are more socially inclined, there is shared eating in the dining room, with three nutritious daily meals. Religious services and offsite activities provide more chances for fellowship and interaction.
What Residents are Saying:
