My Dad was in Assisted living at , Watermark . The staff is nice , but it is understaffed and could not attend him right away. He slipped off the toilet and not allowed to use his walker after that. Confined to a wheelchair and his mobility and health declined. Caught viruses from others. In hospital and then to skilled nursing area several times . Finally brought him home with hired aids. He thrived, at last.

Please know we are completely committed to the safety, health and well-being of our residents and would appreciate the opportunity to hear more. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Executive Director at [removed].
This truly is as good as it gets. I toured the community for my Dad. The Watermark had all the Covid precautions in place to make me feel safe and to ensure their residents felt safe. It truly is a community that has welcoming warm atmosphere with a great culture. The apartments are like no other community we saw. This community has the best fitness center we have seen from all of our tours, they have a pool!!!! Check them out, you will love it as much as we did

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with an online review! We are committed to keeping our residents and guests safe and healthy and we are happy it shows. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
The Watermark is a five star all the way. My Dad lives there in a gorgeous apartment with views of Long Island Sound. He is happy, he is safe and no matter what he needs i have peace of mind knowing that his needs are met. Thank you Watermark for giving my Dad a second lease on life.
My parents moved into the independent living section of the Watermark. The apartment was spacious and they assisted in the move. Housekeeping is provided weekly but reminders had to provided for the yearly maintenance (such as carpet cleaning). The monthly billing was an issue-they would provide a general invoice but not an itemized list of expanses. This became a more significant issue when my parents required more services. Many errors were noted and always in the Watermark's favor. My mother and father required stays in the Springs for rehabilitation (at the Watermark). The care for the father was adequate but in adequate for my mother. The staff recommended more aide coverage than other providers recommended. It appeared the Watermark staff was trying to increase use for their financial benefit. The outside providers were correct in their recommendations. I had to move my parent out of the Watermark when he needed assistive living because the nurses at the Watermark made medication errors resulting in the hospitalization (nurses never changed the medications ordered by the doctor over the course of many months even though these orders were emailed and delivered in hard copy). Expired medications were left on the dining table unattended and available to my parent with dementia also threatening their safety. I can recommend the independent level at the Watermark but not the nurse supervision and services and not the assistive living.
My father is in assisted living and the people are nice to him but unfortunately the care is substandard. Watermark is for profit organization. The have a contract with Omni care (owned by CVS), and although he as Medicare part D, we are being charged exorbitant amounts for medicine outside reimbursement guidelines. The same medication is available at at CVS directly for a fraction of the price, but I understand Omnicare and Watermark must have some revenue sharing arrangement. Also, my father gets no attention. They won't let him go to the library or gym, nor will they escort him there. They put on a prison ankle bracelet, and he feel like he is a prisoner. On the plus side, some of the people are nice to him and he likes the food.
Really nice facility, but expensive given it is really an independent living community. I did not get to see the assisted living community, which I am hearing is not great...but will reserve judgement since I did not get to see it :)

I toured this community for my mother, and her needs. The tour went well, and everyone was very kind. The community was well-kept. The staff that I met was kind,an and informative. My questions were answered. It was a good experience, but it wasn't the right fit for my mother.

Thanks for sharing your positive experience – we love what we do and I’m glad it shows. If it would be possible to give me a call, it would be great to know what we can do differently to make The Watermark the first choice for area seniors. We are focused on constant improvement and your insights would be very helpful. Thank you again for visiting. Sincerely, Kristin Butler, Executive Director Posted on behalf of Kristin Butler.
Our mom lived here in assisted living for one month before we had to move her out. Facility is beautiful, but don't be fooled. Care was substandard: several missed med administrations, forgetting to put her to bed, or bring her to meals on time. Often short staffed, frequent staff turn over. Things did not get better despite our vigilant oversight and trying to get them to get it right. We reluctantly had to move her into another facility which ended up being fabulous. Best decision we made was to get her out of 3030 Park.

It’s quite unusual for us to have such a short stay – I researched our records and it appears your residency was in 2014. We are committed to resident and family member satisfaction and are very sorry you were disappointed in your Mother’s experience with us. We are unable to comment on the details specifically due to our desire to honor her privacy rights. We hope she is doing very well and if you would like to discuss further please don’t hesitate to contact me. Sincerely Kristin Butler, Executive Director Posted on behalf of Kristin Butler.
This is very well known and established. We chose it because it was smaller, and we thought that would be better. The physical set up was terrific, but there was no oversight. They are very hands off and not engaged, the memory care seems almost like an after thought. The aides while pleasant, but didn't really engage with the residents.

I’m sorry to hear that your experience with our memory care program was not more positive. Thank you for your feedback. I can assure you that memory care is not an afterthought to us. In fact, many of our caregivers are specially trained as certified dementia practitioners and they take a Virtual Dementia Tour training as well. We have recently appointed a new Program Director and Supervisor of Assisted Living so I hope you’ll give us a chance to regain your trust. I would encourage anyone who is considering memory care for their loved one to visit several options, spend time there, ask questions and maybe try a vacation stay. I will discuss your feedback with staff and review our commitment to excellence. Please rest assured that we never stop working to achieve 100% resident, associate and family satisfaction. Sincerely, Kristin Butler, Executive Director
Requires effort for caring of dad.
The Watermark is beautiful, and the food is great. But the assisted living was not a good fit for our Mom. We ended up moving her to another nearby location, which has been fabulous.
The staff at The Watermark is friendly. The facility is pretty clean. I feel the expectations of the family is so much more than they can offer. I feel there should be some extra things that aren't there in the independent living areas, such as handrails in the hallway, just for precautionary reasons.
This is a fabulous place! My loved one was here briefly for skilled nursing care, and they did an excellent job. He really felt spoiled here! The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and professional, and the rooms were great.
