My view of Waterstone is somewhat different than others. My wife became ill about 6 years ago and we decided to sell our Condo and find a place to live in a "retirement" community. I then surveyed several of the existing communities in the Boston area and realized there were many aspects I hadn’t known existed. Location. Waterstone is located about 1 mile from the Newton Wellesley Hospital and about 5 miles from the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. Both are 1st class health centers. If you have a 911 emergency, you’re only a few minutes away from help. Amenities. Underground parking if the resident has an automobile. It’s heated and easy access with safety plans serviced by 2 elevators. Shopping is within walking distance. We share a parking lot with CVS and Newton Wellesley clinic. Tony-The-Taylor, 2 Asian restaurants, 2 pizza restaurants are next to CVS, and Pappa Razzi and other small eateries are across the street. I don’t have to rave about the staff or the wonderful management. Other residents have well expressed the humanity of living here. P.S. My wife passed about 5 years ago and I moved in by myself. And of course there was a welcome committee to introduce me to other residents so I had someone to eat with while making new friends.
I’m so thankful to be living here in this safe place at this time of uncertainty‼️
