Overall great facility, don't expect attention from senior staff.
Really my only disappointment was with the senior staff once my mom moved in. They didn't check in during the first few days and also when she came back from a hospital stay (on hospice) they didn't check in for days until I reached out to them. Otherwise, Waterstone at Wellesley is a gr

Completely Unprofessional Operation
We were looking for our father. We contacted the Waterstone, expressed our interest (especially after we ran into an old soccer coach who lived there and recommended the community), took our father on a visit, and arranged for his medical evaluation at his apartment. It was then that we discovered that my father's medical condition would exclude him, but the nurse gave us hope with a "We'll see." And that was the last we heard from Waterstone. We get it was a no, but it would have been nice to hear this directly. We didn't expect to be ghosted by grown women. Corporate was also unresponsive when we asked for an explanation.

Excellent Professional Friendly Staff and Beautiful Facilities
I highly recommend it for the facilities, the location, the common areas are very appealing, and the staff is very friendly. Communication has been a bit of an issue. The orientation was confusing to my loved ones, although I 'm not sure how much of that was due to Covid. Communication regarding minor maintenance repairs and transportation has also been difficult. The transportation is not as seamless as the make it seem, but I haven't given up on it for appointments and such. My loved ones are very happy with the food. Overall we've been pleased.

Waterstone at Wellesley is excellent
Our mother has been here for over 4 years. She is 91 with progressive dementia and does need assistance at times, but can also socialize independently. Waterstone has been wonderful. The staff is warm, well trained, always available and helpful. The facility itself is beautiful with comfortable common rooms and absolutely excellent food. The activities are a combination of fun and intellectual, offering a range from music to history presentations to bingo, etc. We would highly recommend Waterstone for assisted living.

The Other Tour Visit
The tour I was given was a good job. They were on time and knowledgeable of the community. The interaction I seen appeared to be kind and respectful towards the residents. I think I was offered a complimentary meal but I didn't have time. This is in a great spot and it would have been suitable.

Pretty good meals
The facility is nice, although the rooms are kind of small. The staff is great and they really care about the residents. This is a relatively new facility, but it seems to be running pretty smoothly. The meals are healthy and they actually taste pretty good.
