FOLLOW YOUR BLISS

Do what makes you happy.
We have options. 

Enjoy life to its fullest in the elegant setting of The Watermark East Hill, one of Watermark’s most luxurious senior living communities. Here, live an idyllic life in West Haven County. Our community offers an elevated lifestyle with resort-style amenities. The grounds are breathtaking with scenic nature trails, a putting green, and spaces to play bocce ball with friends. 

Life can be carefree, as you focus on your wellness and new and old passions. One day you may take a fitness class and get a massage. The next, you may opt to learn a new language, have fun in a book club, or go with friends on an exciting cultural excursion. The opportunities are limitless. 

This warm, pet-friendly senior living community makes it easy to thrive. Whether you’re taking a dip in our heated indoor saltwater pool with friends, getting in some practice on a putting green, or dining at one of our signature restaurants, you’ll always find experiences to savor. There are plenty of fun and inspiring social gatherings, and even a membership to a nearby country club. And when self-care calls, our mind, body, and spirit classes and spa treatments are sure to help you refresh and rejuvenate. Your new life awaits.
