When you think of assisted living and memory care, what do you see? If cookie-cutter apartments, quiet hallways, bland food and stereotypical activities come to mind, then think again. Over twenty years of experience have taught us that today’s seniors want more choices and are leading a more active lifestyle than generations before. That’s why one visit will shatter your expectations.
How do we do it? We start with an environment of choice. You’ll find a great variety of living options from affordable studio apartments to spacious two-bedroom suites. Best of all, you’re surrounded by an atmosphere that’s truly residential. Monotonous call bells and squawking intercoms – not here. Associates in scrubs pushing medication carts down the hallways – no way. Here, you’ll flourish, thrive and be empowered to express your true self, all in an environment unlike anything you’d expect.
When it comes to boring stereotypical activities – you won’t find them here. We know that challenging the mind and stimulating the body have enormous benefit at any age and can even slow the process of memory loss. That’s why, as part of Watermark Retirement Communities, we created Watermark University. Watermark University offers
