WaterMarks: Signature Programs


Programs are created to embody the heart and soul of the people who thrive here.

Nowhere but in Watermark communities can you find such a diverse array of unique programs designed to support an engaged life of fulfillment. Our passion for innovation and commitment to finding creative solutions have driven the development of numerous “WaterMarks,” our nickname for Signature Programs. 

Many of these Signature Programs have garnered awards and been recognized as best practices in senior living — but that’s not why we created them. We created them because we believe every individual deserves a life filled with purpose, possibility, and joy.

Our options, service, and atmosphere will make you forget you’re in a retirement community. If you wouldn’t have it in your own home, you won’t find it at a Watermark community — no scrubs, medication carts, intercoms, or institutional-sounding call bells. You’ll discover friendly professionals delivering care on your schedule, not ours. You’ll hear lively conversations and laughter from Watermark University classes, clubs, and friendly neighbors gathering. Those expecting drab dining will delight in chef-prepared cuisine on china with linen or fresh, on-the-go meals from our bistro-style cafés. Our environments are “like home” because they are home — a home where you can thrive.
