One of the keys to happiness is staying connected to a community of loving, supportive family and friends. This is especially important for seniors, which is why Crescent Point at Niantic is proud to offer Benchmark Connections — a simple, yet sophisticated online technology that allows our residents to stay in contact with all the people they love. Powered by Connected Living, this online tool allows our residents to share their own stories and life experiences and receive messages, photos, and event reminders from friends and family.
It's a win-win for everyone. Crescent Point at Niantic residents feel more involved with what their loved ones are doing, and their families and friends can keep them updated on the latest news from grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and dear friends.
Benchmark Connections opens up a whole new world to our residents and enhances their lives every day. Some of the highlights of what residents can do with this technology include:
Residents don't need their own personal computer to link to Benchmark Connections. They don't even need to know how to use a computer. Our Computer Learning Centers feature state-of-the-art, large screen touch monitors. We also have weekly Group Learning sessions to get them started and to introduce them to the technology in a way that is fun, stimulating, and highly interactive. We also offer support to those who need extra assistance. Our residents often talk about the confidence they gain from learning this new skill along with their friends. They are also delighted when they learn that they can sign on from any computer anywhere, enabling them to share their page at family gatherings.
