How a Customized Care Plan Benefits Your Senior Loved One

No two people are alike – so why should care plans be one-size-fits-all? That’s certainly not the approach we take at Waterstone at Wellesley. While getting older is inevitable, and needing support is often unavoidable, that doesn’t mean that the best care should be a list of boxes that need to be ticked off. In order to live the best life possible, a customized care plan – a comprehensive plan that encompasses health and wellness in all its facets – can make a huge difference for you or your senior loved one. 

What's the Difference? Independent Living vs. Assisted Living

One of the first choices a senior has to make when moving into a community is what level of care is right for them. Would independent living be the right choice? Or assisted living? There are a lot of similarities between the two care types, so it’s easy to be confused as to which is the best. 

Exquisite Resort-Style Amenities that Redefine Retirement

Your retirement years should be the time of your life – and when it’s time to choose an independent living or assisted living community for yourself, you want a place that understands that. A community that knows what you want and deserve, the services that will make your life easier and free up your time to do the things you want to do. A community with spectacular dining services, a full social calendar, a considerate and proactive staff and amenities that make you feel like you’re living in a five-star resort.

The Waterstone at Wellesley Difference: A Distinctive Culture

When you’re searching for an independent living or assisted living community for yourself or a loved one, you have a list of must-haves and want-to-haves that will help you narrow down your search. From a comfortable atmosphere to good food, from caring staff to a full social calendar, you want a place that will meet and exceed every expectation. And there’s one critical element that’s not something you can see – it’s something you can feel. And it can have a tremendous impact on your level of satisfaction and contentment with a senior living community.
