Jazz, Monet and Piano at Waterstone

Join us during the last week of June for an evening of jazz, a discussion of Impressionism’s founding father and an afternoon of piano classics from the Great American Songbook.

The fun will begin on Friday, June 24 with a performance by the Patrice Monahan Jazz Trio at 7:30 p.m. Fronted by pianist and vocalist Patrice Monahan, the trio performs a blend of swing, Latin, funk and blues, in addition to jazz standards.

15 Minutes of This Activity Each Day Can Increase Your Life Expectancy

Many of us were taught to believe we have to hit the gym several times a week and follow a strict diet to see significant health benefits.

Music, Whaling, American History and More

We have a busy June ahead of us at Waterstone, and we’ll be welcoming summer with a full schedule of events, including musical performances and several educational presentations.   

“It’s not you, it’s your bedroom:” how to change your setup and sleep better

It’s no secret that staying asleep becomes more difficult as we age. According to the results of a 2005 poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, 39% of adults ages 55 and older said they wake up a lot during the night (compared to 24% of adults ages 18-29 and 31% of adults ages 30-49).  

The health benefits of eating certain foods at certain times

A healthy diet goes beyond eating the right foods—it’s knowing when to eat them, too. The fact is, eating certain foods at certain times can affect weight, sleep, physical and mental energy, and other components of health and wellness.

May is Author’s Month at Waterstone at Wellesley, and we’re ecstatic to be hosting several exciting authors for book presentations in the coming weeks. Guests include former Boston Globe reporter and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Kurkjian, Boston historian Anthony Sammarco, Channel 5 reporter Ted Reinstein and New York Times bestselling author B.A. Shapiro.

Healthy hips: how to protect yours from injury


Hip injuries are no joke, especially for older adults. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), at least 250,000 adults ages 65 and older are hospitalized for hip fractures each year, and many of them are not able to live independently afterward.

Food-drug interactions to avoid


Do you take prescription medication? If you’re an older adult, chances are you do—according to research published in Gerontologist, 81% of adults ages 57 through 85 take at least one prescription drug.

Opera, cabaret, Wellesley history and more


Happy spring! We’ll be celebrating the start of the season with a busy schedule of events in April, including opera, pop folk and cabaret performances, as well as a photo presentation on the history of Wellesley.

St. Patrick’s Festivities at Waterstone


It goes without saying that St. Patrick’s Day is a huge holiday here in New England, and the festivities often begin several days before the official holiday on March 17. In keeping with this tradition, Waterstone will host two celebrations this week.
