What brings comfort, security and purpose to a senior residence has to begin with a well trained and welcoming staff. Here at Waterstone, we are gifted with women and men who reach out to all residents with immediate response to our needs and suggestions. At the front desk, in maintenance, programming and food service we have consistently had incredibly hardworking and reliable persons who light up our lives.

The building at Waterstone is ideal. The first floor is immediately available by two elevators to all residential apartments. There is a common area for visiting, complete with fireplaces and comfortable furnishings. There is a fitness room complete with workout equipment and an attached swimming pool, where trained physical therapists conduct daily classes and provide the opportunity of personal instruction.

Our dining area is fully staffed and permits residents to dine at dinner either by themselves or with their neighbors or guests. There is an attached bistro where small groups may enjoy chef-prepared meals, and a cafe for a casual breakfast.

First floor recreation is afforded at a substantial library with its own well-lighted reading area, and there is a card room with a jigsaw puzzle table available to all. Of particular note, Waterstone has its own movie theatre with comfortable seating and a wide screen. Residents may request films or select from the first-rate offerings of the programming staff.

Waterstone is charmingly located on the banks of the Charles River. A half-mile woodland trail along the river begins immediately outside the building at a courtyard with its own putting green. There are planting boxes to enable residents to grow flowers, vegetables and herbs.

To add to the atmosphere, Waterstone provides underground parking accessible by elevator. A nearby pharmacy and restaurants easily reached on foot complete this well-located and sumptuous residential community for seniors.
