Spring Cleaning: 9 Tips for Helping An Aging Parent Move into Assisted Living

Although the new year begins in January, it doesn’t really feel like a “new year” until the arrival of spring. That’s when we stretch our limbs, get out, start making plans and do some much-needed spring cleaning. It can be a great time to go through your old things, get rid of your junk and dream big about how you’re going to transform your space (A new deck? More storage?). It’s also a great time of year for seniors to consider making the move to assisted living. 

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. 

5 Ways to Stay Fit and Healthy This Winter

We all know that staying active is the key to aging well. That’s all well and good in the spring and summer, when the sun is out and the weather is perfect for being outside. It’s a different story in the winter when there’s ice, snow, darkness and cold. It’s tempting to snuggle up and hibernate until the spring thaw hits, but that’s not really the best use of your time, according to Kristine Tilton, Executive Director of Waterstone at Wellesley.

Why More Seniors are Choosing to Retire in Wellesley, Massachusetts

Just 12 short miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown Boston, seniors are discovering an idyllic riverside town that’s perfect for their retirement years.

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.
