About The Residence at Watertown Square
We are located in the heart of historic Watertown, steps from the Charles River and an easy proximity to shopping, houses of worship, recreation and the many cultural attractions that the area offers. We serve the communities surrounding us including Belmont, Newton, Waltham and Cambridge.
We put our rates on our website to increase transparency with our customers and their families. We know how important trust is in making this decision, and want to start establishing that from the very beginning. When you consider all of your options, compare apples to apples, and know that many other providers have a lower starting rate and then add many additional costs for things like medication assistance, care, etc. We don’t do that. Our rates are inclusive with no hidden fees.
The Community has 90 apartments; 37 one bedroom apartments and 28 studios for independent or assisted living residents. Our Reflections Memory Care Neighborhood consists of 20 Reflections studios and 5 companion suites. Apartments in Reflections include a kitchenette (without cooktop).
