Getting older doesn’t mean that you have to slow down. Even if you find that you require a little extra help in order to live a safe, happy and fulfilled life, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your independence. Far from it, in fact. These days, assisted living with a customized approach provides the support that older adults need in order to live their best lives possible, says Devon Sicard, Executive Director of Waterstone at Wellesley.
“Many seniors discover that they actually gain more independence by moving into assisted living from a private home,” she says. “That’s because they’re getting help with the things they need – like getting dressed, bathing, mobility, healthy eating and the like – which leaves them the time and energy to do the things that they want to do.”
The idea of a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach may have been the norm back in the day, but today’s assisted living is focused more on providing customized care designed for each specific person.
“The overall philosophy at Waterstone at Wellesley is to provide care for the things each individual needs and allow them to continue to do the things they are able to do,” she says. “This transforms care from a service to more of a life elevation. We are always looking for ways to celebrate our residents’ abilities while supporting their independence.”
The Best of Both Worlds
Assisted living residents at Waterstone at Wellesley live independently in their own private, spacious apartments without any of the worries or concerns of homeownership or living alone. There aren’t any chores, housework, home maintenance or repairs. Instead, our residents get the support they need and the time to spend as they choose, doing things that are enjoyable and fulfilling.
Waterstone is a vibrant community that provides a variety of opportunities for recreational, social and cultural activities and programs. Our residents enjoy things like fitness classes, delicious dining, engaging hobbies and pastimes and so much more. Best of all, everything is located on campus, making it easy to get around to do the things you want. No more worrying about transportation or planning or any of that. It’s all right within reach.
While an engaging lifestyle is highly important, the peace of mind that comes from assisted living at Waterstone at Wellesley is priceless. Knowing that care and support is available 24/7 instills a sense of confidence that aging seniors can’t find living on their own at home. Besides the care available on site, Waterstone is located just blocks from Newton-Wellesley Hospital with nearby access to Boston’s medical community.
The Benefits of the Waterstone Lifestyle
An engaging daily life.

A focus on personalized care.
We understand that the best care is tailored to each individual’s specific needs and desires. New assisted living residents work with staff members to create a personalized care plan that helps meet your needs, wants and goals. This care plan isn’t set in stone, either. It shifts and evolves right along with you as your life path takes you where you want to go.
