By Silverstone & Watermark Communities
Leaders in healthcare collaborate to launch The Élite Collection — three boutique-style senior living communities rooted in hospitality and integrated wellness.
Two of the nation’s leading senior living experts, Silverstone Senior Living and Watermark Retirement Communities have collaborated to bring boutique senior living rooted in hospitality and integrated wellness to the Washington, D.C. area. These stunning properties offer features and amenities not typically found in assisted living communities and provide personalized service, care, and innovative programming focused on renewal, rather than retirement.
The Élite Collection
Dallas-based Silverstone entered the Washington market in 2018 with three ground up developments in Fairfax, Rockville, and Alexandria, representing a $250 million investment. Tucson-based Watermark Retirement Communities, known for its impeccable service, innovative care, and pioneering programming, will manage the properties offering assisted living, memory care and independent living options.
“Silverstone and Watermark are out to change the way people think about assisted living,” said Denny Alberts, chief executive officer for Silverstone. “We provide best in class, boutique by design senior living residences in distinctive destinations that are as comfortable as home, as luxurious as a country club and provide sophisticated state-of-the-art services and personal care.”
Redefining assisted living
The Élite Collection offers a wide variety of amenities that rival world-class resorts, such as 24/7 concierge services, chef-driven restaurants, salons, spas, art studios, landscaped gardens, terraces, and rooftop lounges. From the attentive concierge to the chef who comes from high-end resorts and hotels to the on-site sommelier, staff are selected for their expertise, as well as their desire to evolve senior living and provide an unparalleled experience.
Watermark’s highly trained associates provide custom support, personal assistance, and award-winning programs for those in assisted living and memory care.
“Person-centered care is the goal in every memory care program,” says Maureen Garvey, regional director of resident programming for Watermark. “What Watermark does differently is continue to design and evolve signature programs that support and enhance tailored care.”
Each community is in a handpicked, curated neighborhood that offers cultural enrichment with access to arts, entertainment, education facilities as well as shopping and dining destinations.
Private studio, one- and two-bedroom residences are available on a monthly rental basis with no long-term commitment. Apartments feature modern kitchenettes, high-end appliances, upscale finishes, tall ceilings, and ample natural light. Some include a private balcony.
“We are truly excited to bring our Watermark brand to Silverstone’s Élite Collection of properties,” said David Barnes, chief executive officer of Watermark Retirement Communities. “Our aging seniors deserve living experiences that allow them to continue to thrive in comfortable and engaging environments and together we bring a one-of-a-kind lifestyle for discerning seniors accustomed to the utmost level of quality.”
