We at Watermark Retirement Communities are excited to welcome ten Legacy Senior Living communities into the Watermark family August 1st. With the addition of these communities, Watermark now proudly manages 50 communities across the country, including 12 in New York.
Watermark has been on the forefront of the senior housing industry for 30 years and is known for visionary leadership, successful operations and high levels of resident, family and associate engagement and satisfaction. Transitioning communities is not new to us. Nearly all of our communities came to Watermark through acquisition or management assignment. Now we look forward to melding our experience and perspective with that of our associates in Rochester.
Overseeing the seamless transition will be Watermark’s newest Managing Director, David Goldsmith. Having been repeatedly recognized for his outstanding leadership as a Watermark Executive Director of The Fountains of RiverVue in Tuckahoe NY, including Executive Director of the Year, David is bound to become a trusted mentor to the ten Executive Directors in his region.
As this transition gets underway, we are looking forward to getting to know our new associates, residents and their families. In the months to come, we will be introducing our signature Watermark programs including Watermark University with a catalog of diverse and evolving class offerings, taught by associates, residents and expert guests. Watermark University helps residents and associates thrive by giving them abundant choices for engaging in mind and body fitness for life. Classes focus on each of the Seven Dimensions of Well-being: Physical, Social, Intellectual, Spiritual, Emotional, Environmental, and Vocational. We’ll also launch the Learning Center for associates, the Naya caregiver and Thrive Dining™ programs for memory care and more.
We’re looking forward to the future and thank you for being part of Watermark. Welcome aboard!
